English customs reveal Dutch lorry driver’s hidden depths

Reporting for Dutch tv station Omroep Flevoland, I chronicled lorry driver Jelle Post’s, successful bid to explain away the £25 million worth of cocaine and ketamine that found amongst his cargo in July 2020. In Dutch law, the surname of a criminal suspect who is on trail is not used in the media. The convention is to use simply their last initial, as I do in these reports.
