Exactly five years ago, the Czech Teresa H. (26), then only 21 years old, turned her life upside down. In early January 2018, customs officers detained her at the airport in Lahore, Pakistan. Nine kilograms of heroin were allegedly found in her suitcase, and a carousel of interrogations and court hearings began for the young blonde.
Teresa was in Pakistan on a three-month visa valid from 15 November to 14 February. When she wanted to fly from Lahore Intertiol Airport to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, on January 10, she passed two checks at the airport without any problems, but on the third there was a catch.
According to the customs officers who checked her, there were nine kilograms of heroin in her suitcase. A video has even surfaced online of customs officers searching a suitcase with a double bottom, with Teresa sitting on the couch in the background, covering her face with her hands.
Tears and Judgment
The blonde beauty ended up in the Kot Lakhpat prison, which has a very bad reputation. A year after her arrest, she was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison for drug smuggling. And yet she was lucky, for this offense in Pakistan she is often sentenced to life imprisonment, and even to the death pelty. However, it is given to foreigners only in really exceptiol cases.
The young Czech woman was crushed by the verdict. She left the court in tears. However, the court’s verdict was declared invalid, Teresa still maintained her innocence and filed an appeal. But almost three years passed before the next verdict, which Teresa spent in prison.
Pakistan’s judicial system is relatively slow, with court hearings being postponed several times for various reasons. For example, because of the strike of judges, but several times and simply because the judge did not have time to discuss the case.
In the end, luck smiled at Teresa. In November 2021, the court filly heard the arguments of her lawyer and dropped the charges against Cheshka. The customs officers who detained the girl in 2018 made a significant mistake when handling the substance found in the suitcase.
After nearly four years in a crimil prison, the Czech woman is filly free. He has now returned to the Czech Republic and is enjoying his newfound freedom. She fell in love with former league footballer Marian Kovar and regularly updates fans on her life on her Instagram.
