Mauritius: The French Aurore Gros Coissy condemned to 20 years imprisonment for drug trafficking makes an appeal

Aurore Gros Coissy, a native of Lyon, behind bars in Mauritius since August 2011 for illegal import of Subutex and who has been condemned on January 30, 2015 by the Mauritian justice to a sentence of 20 years imprisonment, decided last Friday to make an appeal of the sentence pronounced against her.
Thus, the French national indicates through her man of law not having appreciated that the judge considers her as a liar and said that her trial had been unfair because according to her the drug squad has not acted during the investigation professionally.
Aurore Gros Coissy particularly regrets that her Mauritian ex-boyfriend, Cornell Tinsley, who would have trapped her in this case has not been prosecuted. And no DNA test and or even a fingerprinting on the seized Subutex tablets have been carried out to check or deny the version she presented in court. She also highlights that the evidence of customs who intercepted her at the airport has many contradictions.
As a reminder, Aurore Gros Coissy had been arrested at her descent of plane in Plaisance on August 19 2011, by police officers from the drug squad, with 1,673 tablets of Subutex - listed as a hard drug on the island - concealed inside a packet of biscuits.
Since the young woman of 27 years, from her prison cell, has always maintained her innocence, denouncing a plot by her former Mauritian boyfriend and who would have given her the package as a simple gift. The mother of her ex-boyfriend was also sentenced in this case to a term of 20 years of imprisonment.
