Four members of the Organised Crime Unit in Pietermaritzburg have received recognition from the UK Metropolitan Police Service and UK government for their contribution to cracking a major drug trafficking syndicate that operated between England and South Africa.

Their UK accomplice, and alleged mastermind of the syndicate, Robert Flook, was later sentenced in the UK to 26 years’ imprisonment for conspiracy to supply 150 kg of cocaine and to 13 years’ imprisonment for conspiracy to supply cannabis — the sentences were ordered to run concurrently.
