Two Norwegian men in their 20s have been in custody in western Germany since June, after being stopped on their way from Antwerp in Belgium with 67 kilos of heroin.
The two drove across the border between Belgium and Germany on June 17 this year and were stopped not long after crossing the border, writes TV 2.
Since then, the men have been in custody in the towns of Duisburg and Kleve, not far from the border.
The drugs they were stopped with have a street value of many tens of millions of kroner.
Patrik Lundevall-Unger is defending one of the accused men, who has family in Norway and will be with his client for questioning at the end of September. His client claims he is innocent.
The criminal case will go to court in December. The penalty for heroin dealing in that order of magnitude is 16 years in Germany.
