Aussie ‘drug mule’ faces jail in Colombia
SYDNEY: An Australian is facing 25 years in one of Colombia’s most squalid prisons on drug trafficking charges that her family yesterday claimed was a set-up. Cassie Sainsbury, 22, was arrested on April 12 at El Dorado International Airport in Bogota on her way back to Adelaide with 5.8kg of cocaine in her suitcase, her sister Khala said. Cassie claimed she was set up by a Colombian man she befriended while on a working holiday. The family has begun a campaign to help cover legal fees.
