Kiss-off for drug ac­cused

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - The Everest -

AN al­leged mem­ber of an in­ter­na­tional racket ac­cused of traf­fick­ing drugs worth more than $1 mil­lion into Aus­tralia has made an emo­tional dis­play to his part­ner in court.

Ir­ish­man Stephen Don­nelly was one of four men ar­rested in Dar­win on Wed­nes­day by of­fi­cers from Task­force Neme­sis, a cross bor­der and mul­ti­a­gency po­lice op­er­a­tion. It fol­lows a four-month in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Don­nelly, who faced court yes­ter­day with his three co-ac­cused charged with sup­ply­ing a com­mer­cial quan­tity of drug, blew kisses from the dock to one of two tear­ful women be­lieved to be part­ners of two of the men in court.
