In a drug smuggling case, Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Tuesday barred Czech Republic model Tereza Hluskova from traveling overseas.
The Customs appeal against Tereza Hluskova’s acquittal was considered by a three-member SC bench consisting of Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan, Justice Munib Akhtar, and Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi.
The court issued a notice to the Czech model and barred her from leaving the country during the proceedings.
Tereza Hluskova, who was condemned to eight years in prison by a trial court for importing drugs, was later released by the Lahore High Court, according to Customs Advocate Waqar A Sheikh (LHC). He stated that the accused was acquitted by the appellate court.
He claimed that the accused had acquired a plane ticket and would travel on April 23 for a trip abroad.
The court gave Czech model notice of the hearing and set it for April 20.
Tereza Hluskova was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison in April 2019 by a sessions’ court. On January 10, 2018, she was arrested at Lahore airport for attempting to import heroin from Pakistan to Abu Dhabi. Last November, the court acquitted her, and she was freed from prison the same month.
