China jails nine opioid smugglers, after joint operation with United States.

AAA total of nine drug smugglers were handed ‘severe’ sentences by the Chinese court. It has jailed nine people for smuggling fentanyl into the United States after collaborating with American officers as part of a landmark joint investigation.

China jails nine opioid smugglers after joint operation with US. The court said the case marked the first time that US and Chinese law enforcement collaborated on a fentanyl smuggling case. The heavy sentences sought to counter criticism that China had failed to do enough to fight the international trade of fentanyl, a deadly synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin. The court, in the northern city of Xingtai, handed Liu Yong a suspended death sentence, which usually means life in prison. Wang Fengxi and Jiang Juhua were both sentenced to life, and six others were given jail terms ranging from six months to ten years.
