Drug baron Nayele Ametefe, who pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilogrammes of cocaine to the United Kingdom and was sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment, has been released from jail and is back in Austria, Starfmonline.com has reported.
She has been released already due to “good behaviour”, having served approximately three-and-a-half years of her eight-year sentence.
The Ghanaian, who has Austrian citizenship, was convicted January 6, 2015 for transporting cocaine to the UK. She was convicted on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in the UK.
Family sources have hinted that the 35-year-old is not returning to Ghana, where her properties had been confiscated.
She is in Austria “to live a quiet life,” her family said.
Nayele, who made the headlines late 2014 and early 2015, reportedly used the VVIP Lounge of Kotoka International Airport to smuggle illicit drugs outside the shores of the West African country through a British Airways flight.
She was apprehended with about 12.5kg of cocaine with a street value of £1.9 million at Heathrow Airport in London in 2014.
She was reported to have had on her $23, 000 and £6,000 at the time of her arrest.
