Nightmare ordeal

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/h...re/4446170.stm

Don't know if anyone else has followed this but the poor bugger has been through hell.

All he did was deliver a yacht from the UK to Morocco in 1997. About 10 weeks later the yacht was raided and they found 2 tons of cocaine aboard - quite how
anyone could ever have blamed the delivery crew I don't know but a warrent was issued for their arrest.

The first the poor bloke knew about it was when he went to Spain on holiday last year - he was arrested and then extradited to Morrocco - bet the Spainsh wouldn't have done that to one of their citizens!!!

He lives just around the corner to me, here in Cowes.

I think he has a good few pints waiting for him.
