Australia: Legal secretary carries $7m cannabis on plane

A legal secretary who was “keen to impress” her then-drug trafficker fiancee carried three suitcases’ worth of marijuana on a plane bound for Brisbane for him, a court has been told.

Emily Louise Ross cried in the dock of Brisbane Supreme Court as the details of her role in a major trafficking operation – estimated by a judge to be worth more than $7m – was laid bare by prosecutors on Friday.

More than 45kg of marijuana, along with substantial amounts of cocaine, methylamphetamine and cash, were seized after police surveilled the young woman when she touched down from Brisbane airport in December 2019.
