2,500 citizens are arrested abroad. One third of the arrests are on drug-related charges. Many of those arrested assumed as U.S. citizens that they could not be arrested. From Asia to Africa, Europe to South America, citizens are finding out the hard way that drug possession or trafficking equals jail in foreign countries.

captain Volodymyr Ustymenko and second officer Yuriy Datchenko have been detained in Venezuela since the August 2007

B Atlantic captain Volodymyr Ustymenko and second officer Yuriy Datchenko have been detained in Venezuela since the August 2007 discovery of cocaine on the bulker’s hull in Lake Maracaibo. Attorney Aurelio Fernandez of Clyde & Co – who represented the owner in the case and has knowledge of the criminal proceedings – confirmed to Fairplay that the officers have now been sentenced.

Asserting their innocence, Fernandez called the convictions “purely political” and added that “in any other country in the world they would have been acquitted”.

Fernandez said the latest two convictions follow eight-year sentences for two Greek officers of the tanker Astro Saturn. Cocaine was found attached to the Astro Saturn in Puerto La Cruz in November 2008.

Venezuela continues to detain vessels used by drug smugglers. The tanker Aqua has been detained in Lake Maracaibo since February, and the Chinese bulker Jin Yao was arrested this month.

“Any owner that travels to Lake Maracaibo or Venezuela in general, and has the bad luck to have one of these criminal organisations attach a drug device underwater, is at risk of losing the vessel and crew,” warned Fernandez.

“We have to convince the Venezuelan government that the situation has to be reversed, or else we’ll have 10 vessels laid up in Lake Maracaibo and owners won’t want to travel to Venezuela,” he said

Journal Online | Death awaits drug mules

Journal Online | Death awaits drug mules: "THE Philippine Consulate General in Guangzhou again reminded Filipinos of stiffer penalties for foreign nationals convicted of drug-related offenses in China.

The Intermediate People’s Court of Guangzhou recently sentenced to death a Chinese-French citizen for manufacturing, transporting and dealing large amounts of shabu. The suspect is a member of the eight-man drug ring operating in Guangdong and Henan province.

Another member, a Chinese national, was sentenced to death. Two others were meted out the same sentence, but given a two-year reprieve.

Three others were sentenced to life imprisonment while another member was meted out a 20-year jail term.

Five foreign nationals — four Japanese and a British – were executed for smuggling illegal drugs into China.

Drug syndicates resort to offering high-paying jobs in China to recruit “drug mules” or drug couriers. Payment can range from $500 to $2000, depending on the amount of drugs involved. The most common job offer is to bring into or out of China some goods where drugs are hidden.

Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affairs Esteban B. Conejos said there is a continuing trend of Filipinos being arrested for carrying drugs even as he warned of stiff penalties."
