MELBOURNE – A 28 year old nurse from Kuching which was caught  with 1.5kg of heroin is set to face the Melbourne court this Monday.  The Star Online reported that the mother of three didn’t know she was carrying the drugs as she was helping her Nigerian boyfriend.  Investigations are said to have found that the heroin package didn’t have her fingerprints, and that she is now in women’s prison in Deer Park.

Local authorities in Sarawak have noted the rise in drug mule cases involving Sarawakian women in recent years, and have declared that they are taking measures to curb such unfortunate incidents from happening.
