Drug case fails as defence raises police informer
A drug case in the Magistrates Court collapsed last week after prosecutors refused to offer evidence relating to a paid police informer.
The case involved a defendant who had pleaded guilty to importing cannabis resin into Gibraltar but disputed the amount of drugs that prosecutors claimed he was carrying.
