Heroin siezed by Swedish Customs Officers

Drug couriers "should be given incentives to talk"

Prosecutors in Sweden are calling for reduced sentences for those who co-operate with the police.

On Wedensday, Sweden’s Prosecutor General suggested couriers who admit to their crimes should be given a lower tariff, but others think courts should go futher.

They say there is currently no incentive for couriers to tell police anything, and that means while they are often caught, those pulling the strings at the top rarely are.
