India frees alleged pot smuggler
by UPI

MUMBAI - Indian authorities have freed a British woman sentenced to 10 years in jail for allegedly smuggling 22 pounds of marijuana in her suitcase.

The attorney for Daisy Angus said Saturday she was released after her court appeal was granted. "Daisy has been acquitted of all the charges," Ayaz Khan said. "She is with her family."

Angus was a 22-year-old fitness instructor from Dorset, England, on a round-the-world backpacking adventure when arrested by customs officials at Mumbai airport in November 2002. She maintained her innocence and claimed someone had given her the pot-filled suitcase after her bag broke.

Angus had been convicted last June at the conclusion of a trial that started in April 2004. In the appeal filed on her behalf, her attorney argued that the suit case belonged to co-defendant Israeli Yoram Kadesh, who was freed by a judge because of a lack of evidence. His acquittal is now being appealed.
