. "The court has drawn the inference that you were couriering this money on behalf of individuals running cannabis factories in south Wales. "Such factories are prevalent and run in this particular way as in the people who do the dirty work are not the people who set them up in the first place or derive any benefit from them. The two of you were being used by individuals in your community who had no shame in offering paltry sums of money to carry out these jobs so they would be protected from investigation and apprehension."

Sentencing, Judge Morgan said: "There has been a substantial delay in this case by the Covid pandemic and from the fact neither of you stood up and admitted the allegations. The reality is neither of you had any defence to the allegations, you simply blamed each other and came out with nonsensical stories about what you were doing on that night in that place." Mytro, of Caversham Road, Birmingham, and Dragjoshi, of Gomer Street, Walsall, were both sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.
