China jails politician for smuggling drugs in shoes

AFP, Beijing

A court in southern China sentenced a former politician from Japan to life imprisonment yesterday for attempting to smuggle drugs out of the country hidden in the soles of platform shoes.

76-year-old Takuma Sakuragi was caught at an airport in 2013 with 3.29 kilogrammes of methamphetamine hidden in the handle of his suitcase and in the soles of “women’s foam sandals” inside the case, according to a report published on an official court website. Sakuragi, a former city councillor in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture, was attempting to fly from Guangzhou to Japan via Shanghai.
