Rustenburg. – A 30-year-old Botswana woman arrested for smuggling drugs into Bangladesh is alive and awaiting trial in that country, her father said.

According to media reports, Lesedi Molapisi was set to be executed on Friday for attempting to smuggle 3kg of heroin into Bangladesh. It was not yet clear whether she was executed or was still alive.

Her father, Shakwane Molapisi, told television news channel Newzroom Afrika that the trial against his daughter had not yet started.

He told the television channel that he was communicating with his daughter via an intermediary contracted by an African association in Bangladesh to assist her.

“The trial has not yet started, that is what I know. The last communication I had with her through those notes was last week. She appeared in court on November 14 for mention not trial,” her father told Newzroom Afrika.

He said he was communicating with his daughter through notes shared via the intermediary.

He said his daughter did not know there were drugs in her luggage.

Molapisi said his unemployed daughter left home on January 16 and seven days letter they heard news that she was arrested in Bangladesh for possession of illegal drugs. – IOLNews
