Three jailed for drug money laundering

BUTCHER Michael O'Brien - the Island's biggest convicted drug smuggler - was back behind bars today alongside many of the dealers he helped convict.

He is expected to be placed in the vulnerable person's unit at La Moye for his own protection during the four-year stretch.

O'Brien was sentenced after admitting laundering the proceeds made from smuggling heroin, cannabis, speed and ecstasy.

He has already served half of a six-year sentence in a UK prison for drug trafficking.His estranged wife Yvonne Edmond-O'Brien (54) and his old friend Michael Joseph Dunne (56) were also jailed.

Edmond-O'Brien was sentenced to seven years and Dunne to nine.

Both had denied being involved in what was described in court as a 'highly sophisticated international drug money laundering operation'.
