Lee Maltby, 28, smuggled the drugs, with an estimated street value of £18,000, into Britain and then planned to sell them,.

The first part went to plan and he slipped into Britain to visit family in Winchester, the city’s crown court heard.

But he could not remove the drugs, 45 grams of high-quality cocaine, from his stomach and six days later he was hit by severe stomach pains.

Maltby went to the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester and spent a week receiving treatment before nature took its course.

The court heard Maltby told medical staff he had swallowed cannabis.

Once he had passed the drugs, Maltby left hospital and returned to his wife and child in Brazil, where he has worked as an English teacher.

Health managers did alert the police once Maltby had been discharged, but he had already gone back to South America.

Hampshire police contacted him and persuaded him to return to England which he did.

Maltby initially denied possessing cocaine with intent but later changed his plea earlier this year.

His claimed that he had drugs problems and was under pressure from Brazilian dealers because he owed them money.

Brothers Santiago and Carlos Alberto Noreña Mesa and their cousin, Carlos Julio Noreña Restrepo, will appear before a federal court in Florida on drug charges.

Seven other suspects were arrested in Colombia - in the northwestern city of Medellin and in Ipiales, near the border with Ecuador - while another two people were detained in New York and Miami.

The operation, dubbed "Alianza 16," also led to the dismantling of a cocaine laboratory in the northwestern town of Guarne and the seizure of 27 kilos of that drug.

Gen. Pinzon said the gang smuggled the drugs out of Colombia via direct flights from the Medellin airport to Miami or New York and overland through Ecuador.

The gang used drug mules to smuggle the heroin and also hid the narcotics in false bottoms of suitcases and inside handicrafts, the general said.

Bolivian President Evo Morales has refused to invite US anti-narcotics agents back into the country.

Bolivian President Evo Morales has refused to invite US anti-narcotics agents back into the country.

He also accused the US of trying to use the arrest of the former Bolivian drugs chief to defame his government.

US agents arrested former head of the Bolivian anti-narcotics police Gen Rene Sanabria last week on charges of drug trafficking, which he denies.

Mr Morales said the affair did not mean that the police as a whole or the government had links to drug dealers.

President Morales expelled all the US agents working for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) from Bolivia in 2008, saying they were aiding his opponents.

Since the arrest last week of Gen Sanabria by DEA agents in Panama, some opposition politicians have been calling for the return to Bolivia of the American agents to help the Andean country in its fight against drug trafficking.

But President Morales said the DEA was “an instrument the US uses to blackmail those countries who don’t comply with imperialism and capitalism”.

He said that even though Bolivia was only a small country, its government, armed forces and police would not bow to the DEA.

“The fight against drugs is driven by geopolitical interests,” he said.

“And when a policeman is tainted, that’s the problem of that policeman, but they’re using him to implicate the government,” he added referring to the arrest of Gen Sanabria.

Gen Sanabria is facing charges in a Miami court of trying to smuggle 100kg of cocaine into the US and heading a drug-smuggling gang made up of a dozen Bolivian police officers.

He headed Bolivia’s anti-narcotics operations from 2007 to 2009, and was in charge of an intelligence unit in the Bolivian interior ministry at the time of his arrest.

According to the United Nations 2010 World Drug report, Bolivia is the world’s third largest producer of coca, the leaf from which cocaine is made.

In a report published on Thursday, US authorities accused Bolivia of “failing demonstrably” in its fight against the drugs trade
