A regional court has confirmed a two year sentence for the Polish owner of a network of so-called Amsterdam shops which sold synthetic drugs packaged as collectors’ items. After serving his sentence he will be deported and banned from returning to the Czech Republic for a period of six years. The court found him guilty of knowingly trading in addictive drugs. The shop owner claimed that the items were marked as non-consumables and had appealed the verdict on the grounds that similar shops around Europe sell the same products without being prosecuted.
