Drug dealer who poured champagne over Rolex watches is jailed

pattaya one champagne over Rolex

A drug dealer who filmed himself pouring champagne over expensive Rolex watches at an exclusive Knightsbridge club has been jailed for more than 15 years.

Mansoor Kiani, 28, was also videoed being driven round in a Ferrari as he flaunted his earnings from peddling heroin and cocaine.

He tried to hide his drug-dealing activities by using the encrypted phone communication system Encrochat.

But he was arrested after police cracked it as part of Operation Costello, the UK’s biggest ever law enforcement operation, in spring 2020.

Mansoor Kiani, aged 28 years, tried to hide his criminal activities, dealing heroin and crack cocaine, by using an encrypted communication system, which was later cracked by police teams. A jury was shown a video recorded on Kiani's phone of him being driven around in a Ferrari, and another video of him flexing his wealth by pouring champagne over Rolex watches in a club in Knightsbridge, London, in an illustration of the luxury lifestyle he funded through his wholesale drug dealing.

Messages showed Kiani, from Luton, arranging meetings with drug and cash couriers, co-ordinating payments to suppliers, and arranging code words.

He was found guilty of conspiracy to supply class A drugs after a three-day trial at Luton Crown Court and sentenced to 15-and-a-half years in prison.

Detective Inspector Tom Stean said: ‘There is no doubt Kiani was behind the distribution of multiple kilogrammes of cocaine and heroin, something which will have no doubt had a significant and harmful impact across our communities.

‘His money was made entirely from illegal activity. I am sure many will feel sick watching him parade his wealth in this video and share my satisfaction that he is now facing a lengthy prison sentence.’
