Michaella McCollum and Melissa Reid to return home. In the latest development in the case of the “Peru Two” Michaella McCollum and Melissa Reid, it seems as if they will be allowed to serve their sentence back home after the British and Peruvian authorities reach an agreement which will seen the women serve their sentence out in a British Jail.
The two girls were caught last summer attempting to smuggle 11kg of cocaine out of the country last summer and quickly made headlines across the world being dubbed the “Peru Two”.
At first they claimed they had been forced into doing this by drug dealers but later admitted that they did it via their own free will for a reported £5000. The girls were facing a much lengthier sentence if they had put in a not guilty plea.
In the end they were sentenced to six years and eight months in December of last year. They are currently serving time at the Ancon 2 jail outside of Lima after being transferred from the Virgen De Fatima prison complex.Britian has agreed to take the two girls into the British prison system due to a repatriation agreement in place between the two countries. This however is not an instant thing and it is expected to take a few months before the women will actually be repatriated.
What do you think? Should they be allowed to serve out their sentence in the UK? Do you feel like they are getting special treatment?
