A woman has been charged with importing a euthanasia drug from Mexico into Australia. Two bottles of the border-controlled drug Nembutal were intercepted at Melbourne Airport last March.

Australian Federal Police officers executed a search warrant on an address in the eastern suburb of Canterbury on April 15, 2009 but the woman was not charged on summons until last week.

The Canterbury woman, aged 61, is due to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court. The maximum penalty for this offense is 25 years’ jail or a $550,000 fine.
