Judge Spence ordered Gary Stuart Carson, 29, and his wife, Lynda Marie Horbatowska, 31, both of Avondale Road, Armadale, to serve a~?inimum of 10 ycars be~ore parole. (:arson had pleaded not guilty and Horbatowska guilty - to conspirin~; to i.mpcrt tl~e l~eroin into Australia between 1 March and 6 July 198O. 7'he Crown h~id alle~;c,~d tliat the couple, both originally from ~ngland, were. memhers of- a drug ring whict? was broken after a member became a police in- - former and taped conversations between them and David Joseph Vincent of East St Kilda, who was ttie alleged syndicate head. Mr Vincent was a defendant along with the couple at a committal hearing in November last year b~it he failed to appear on the last day of tt~e hearing. Two other members of the drug ring were arrested in Thailand and are awaiting trial in Bangkok. In a plea, Mr Tom Danos, for Gary Carson, told Jucige Spence that his client had n?arried Horbatowska in iail and that they now had a child. He said they had been used as pawns in the operation and had gone along with the plan because they were afraid. Judge Spence said it had been a"most serious conspiracy" involving the importation of about 1-1/2 pounds of heroin. "You were fairly confident it would succeed and it nearly did," he said.

'1'he statement coincides with a recent interview purported to have been given by a close aide af "Khun Sa" alias Chang Si-fu, who carries a 500,000 baht on his head [as published] for being a heroin kingpin. The aide was quoted by MATICHON DAILY ~s claiming that the BCP had managed to persuade Muser, Shan and some left-leaning Karen Hill tribesmen to cultivate poppy fields on a large-scale in areas north of Kok River in Doi Lang on the Burmese side of t:le border, opposite Thailand's Amphoe Mae Ai and Amphoe Fang. Whether Khun Sa's version of the BCP's activity in this regard was valid or not, Western antinarcotics agents have confirmed that the Communist Party of Burma had actually been involved heavily in the opium trade although Khun Sa's Shan United Army (SUA) might have been given more publicity in this regard. - According to the statement given by Khun Sa's aide, the Burmese Communists appear to be moving towards expanding their influence in areas now considered under Sua's contr.ol. The aide reportedly said the Burmese Communists' major narc~tic trade routes are now clearly divided into two: '1'he first route was once controlled by the 1Q~I7' [Kuo Min Tang] remnants in Doi Lang _ While the other is along `Congyi-chiang Tung down to the Thai border at Amphoe Mae Sai of Chiang itai Provlnce. 'Ihat mountain trek was once dominated by another minority ~;roup known as "'l'ai Independent Army" (TIA), allegedly led by M. R. Pariwat 1 Kasemsi. 'I'he group w
