Freed drug mule full of regret
Cape Town - A Western Cape woman has arrived home after spending seven years in a Mauritian prison for drug smuggling.
Anneline Mouton touched down at Cape Town International Airport on Thursday. She was jailed for smuggling drugs onto the island, Eyewitness News reported.
Mouton had a miscarriage shortly after she was sent to prison and reportedly suffered great unhappiness, discomfort and pain during her incarceration.
On Thursday, she criticised the South African government, saying it did not do enough to help prisoners in foreign countries.
Mouton said she was desperate to make it up to her family.
“Yes, I’ve done something wrong and I’m sorry I’ve done it. I’m paying [for it] every day of my life. I need my family,” she told Eyewitness News.
She told reporters she paid for what she had done every day of her life and said she needed her family.
