A prose­cu­tor yes­ter­day called on a Pi­raeus court pre­par­ing to is­sue sen­tences for 15 out of the 30 peo­ple im­pli­cated in the Noor 1 heroin smug­gling af­fair to re­ject the de­fen­dants’ ap­peals for their pre­vi­ous clean records to be taken into ac­count in sen­tenc­ing. Ac­cord­ing to sources, the prose­cu­tor in­di­cated that only two of the 15 peo­ple found guilty in con­nec­tion with the smug­gling of more than 2 tons of heroin into Greece aboard the Noor 1 cargo ship in 2014 should be shown some le­niency in sen­tenc­ing. The terms are ex­pected to be an­nounced to­day.
