Drug dealer must stump up £24,000

A DRUG trafficker who was jailed for nine years after he was caught organising deliveries of cocaine following his early release from prison has been ordered to hand over £24,000 crime profits.

Adnan Ul-Haq became the main target of a police operation aimed at tackling the illegal trade in Class A drugs in West Lothian.

Ul-Haq, 32, was jailed for four and a half years in 2007 for a cocaine offence but was freed in the summer of 2009.

But while out of prison on licence Ul-Haq, who worked in a family Costcutter store in Blackburn, in West Lothian, returned to the cocaine trade in 2010.

Ul-Haq’s counsel Susan Duff told the High Court in Edinburgh that an agreement had been reached to settle the 
proceeds of crime action.

Ul-Haq was given six months to pay the £24,000 at yesterday’s hearing.
