PAPEETE – A French Polynesian court has sentenced 20 people to up to seven years in prison for their role in a vast marijuana production and distribution network.
They were found guilty of growing the drug on Tahiti Iti for sale across the Society Islands through a network of dealers from 2010 to 2014.
The head of the organisation, Marvin Ah-Min, was given a seven-year prison sentence and a $US90,000 ($F188,000) fine. He had already been in detention as part of an investigation into the distribution of methamphetamine. The other defendants were given shorter sentences.
