Australian man who was wrongly accused of smuggling drugs in bottles of Shampoo by the Australian customs and Border protection department, will be compensated a total of $100,000
Neil Parry of Darwin spent three days in jail last year after he was arrested at Darwin Airport and accused of trafficking liquid ecstasy. His boat and two friends’ houses were searched.
But his two bottles of Pantene Pro-V shampoo and conditioner contained exactly what the labels said.
Australian Customs and Border Protection said in a statement Monday that there were “mistakes made during the presumptive testing of Mr. Parry’s goods” and additional procedures have been introduced when conducting drug tests.
