November 21, 2011 by staff 

Neil Parry $100,000, A Darwin man who was wrongly accused of trafficking drugs into Australia in his shampoo and conditioner says he’s received $100,000 compensation.

In June last year, Neil Parry was arrested at Darwin Airport.

He was charged with trafficking 1.6 kilograms of liquid ecstasy in two bottles of the hair product, Pantene Pro-V.

His boat – and two of his friend’s houses were searched – and Mr Parry spent three days in Darwin’s jail.

“The usual answer is something must have been going on and I can assure you nothing was going on,” Mr Parry said.

Mr Parry says he has been locked in a legal battle with Customs for the past 17 months.

He says on Friday, Customs apologised and admitted it failed to follow correct procedures when testing the shampoo.

“Well it proves the system does work but of course most people wouldn’t take it this far.”

A Customs and Border Protection spokesperson says a mistake was made and Mr Parry has received an apology.
