An additional district and sessions court in Lahore on March 20 had sentenced Czech model Tereza Hluskova to eight years and eight months in jail and fined her Rs113,000 after she was arrested last year on charges of carrying eight and a half kilogrammes of heroin from Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport.

In her appeal filed before the Lahore High Court through her lawyer, Hluskova has requested that the ruling of the sessions court be set aside as it negated the true facts of the case.

The 21-year old model has claimed she is innocent and had come to Pakistan on a three-month family visit visa for Islamic studies.
