'Drugs baron' case jury sent home
Brian Wright is accused of smuggling cocaine on luxury yachts
A jury trying the case of a man accused of smuggling cocaine into the UK has been sent home for a fourth day.
Brian Wright, 60, formerly of Chelsea, west London, is alleged to have been the mastermind behind multi-million pound shipments of Class A drugs.
A gang used luxury yachts to bring the cocaine from Venezuela, via the Caribbean, into the UK, a court heard.
The prosecution at Woolwich Crown Court have claimed Mr Wright used horseracing as a "facade" for his activities.
Mr Wright, originally from Ireland, fled to Northern Cyprus in 1999, the court was told.
He denied conspiracy to evade prohibition on the importation of a controlled drug and conspiracy to supply drugs.
