Liberian traffickers vanish

Most surmise the not guilty verdict was a result of jury tampering.
Four drug dealers arrested in Liberia for trafficking cocaine worth $100 million have vanished immediately after a jury found them innocent in a surprise verdict. The men – Lebanese, Liberian, Guinean and Portuguese – were arrested in a bust last year which involved US and Brazilian intelligence. They were accused of smuggling 500 kg of cocaine in a container of pig’s feet from Latin America. Liberia and West Africa form part of a key drug trafficking route.
