Air Cocaine French convict deported to France

One of four French men sentenced to 20 years in jail for participating in the trafficking of 1,500 lbs of cocaine in 26 suitcases, Alain Marc Paul Marie Castany, was deported to France to serve the remainder of his sentence, reported the Attorney General Office (PGR).

Castany is one of four men accused in the case. Others are pilots 55-year old Pascal Jean Fauret and 56-year old Bruno Odos and passenger Nicolas Pisapia.

As reported in El Nacional, Castany had secured his release after appealing the sentence when he suffered a traffic accident and may lose one of his legs. The newspaper reported the National District Court of Appeals had confirmed the 20-year sentence to the Frenchman.

The case is known internationally as part of the Air Cocaine operations. The Frenchmen were arrested on the evening of 19-20 March 2013, shortly before the departure of a leased Falcon 50 from Punta Cana International Airport to St. Tropez, France. Pilots Fauret and Odos were also on conditional release and escaped on a boat to the French Caribbean with the help of Frenchman Christophe Naudin in October 2015, later traveling to France. They now face charges in France.
