Justice is blind

The drugs prosecution of the heir to the multi-billion pound Tetra Pak empire has been formally dropped.

Hans Kristian Rausing, 45, who stands to inherit his Swedish father's £5.4bn drinks carton firm, was charged with possessing Class A drugs in April.

Last month he and his wife Eva Louise Rausing, 44, who faced similar charges, were given a police caution instead.
The pair, of Chelsea, west London, were arrested when Mrs Rausing was caught with drugs at the US embassy in London. (BBC)
They were caught going into the US embassy with ten grammes of crack and two and half of heroin, and when the police searched their house there was more than fifty grammes of coke there. But oddly enough there has been no sentence, and they ended up with a caution.

I'm sure that we can all agree with Chief Crown Prosecutor Dru Sharpling when she says
The policy and practice surrounding conditional cautions is applied consistently to both rich and poor.

And they have small kids. I guess the nanny keeps them out of the way at coke events.
One law for the rich .....
