Colombian authorities detained this woman – Ritchie Tabatha Leah – as she was trying to board a plane back to Toronto with 2 kilogrammes of cocaine hidden inside a fake baby bump.
She told customs officials she was seven months pregnant but when an inspector examined the 28-year-old’s belly and felt it was cold and hard – suspicions were aroused.
If convicted of drug trafficking, Leah could face up to eight years in prison.
A new Quebec law, seen as a government attempt to finally end ongoing student protests, has renewed fury among Canadians this week. The bill forbids any large protest, peaceful or otherwise, without prior police approval. But far from stopping demonstrations, clashes are intensifying, with thousands more joining-in to demand that the act be repealed. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan is in Montreal.
