SA woman arrested in Thailand
It is alleged the woman was caught in possession of cocaine on Thursday.
JOHANNESBURG - The Department of International Relations has confirmed that a South African woman has been arrested in Thailand for alleged drug trafficking.
The woman was caught in possession of cocaine on Thursday.
It's being reported that the woman transported the narcotics in chocolate boxes but the department could not confirm this.
Just more than a week ago convicted drug mule Tessa Beetge returned home after serving almost half of her 12 year sentence in a Brazilian prison.
Beetge was used as a drug mule by the former wife of State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele.
In May 2011 Sheryl Cwele and her co-accused Frank Nabolisa were found guilty of using Beetge to smuggle drugs.
The International Relations Department's Nelson Kgwete said, "We have received confirmation from our ambassador in Thailand. The ambassador has confirmed she will send officials to visit her tomorrow to take her fingerprints and confirm her South African citizenship."
