Jan Antolik, whose genuine name is Karel Sroubek, was imprisoned in 2016 for a long time and nine months in the wake of being indicted bringing in the Class-B MDMA powder covered up among a shipment of real products.
The conviction came four years after a judge released him without conviction, in spite of being discovered liable of having a false visa and misleading migration authorities.
Sroubek came to New Zealand from the Czech Republic in September 2003 to begin another life as Jan Antolik.
Sroubek, matured 22 at the time, and his family had been undermined by two cops who needed them to lie and clear the principle suspect in a murder examination.
Rather, he cleared out a recorded witness proclamation, which was later pivotal in sentencing the executioner, and fled the nation with a doctored identification.
He was unmasked in October 2009 when Czech police called Auckland analysts and gave subtle elements of his character and a capture warrant on minor accuses in association of the 2003 murder.
Antolik argued not blameworthy to the charges but rather conceded utilizing a false character to come to New Zealand.
His resistance was he had a “sensible reason” to give a false name as he had fled his country in dread of degenerate cops and a criminal.
The Crown did not question his story but rather said Antolik ought to have uncovered his actual character to New Zealand experts.
The jury indicted him however Judge Roy Wade gave him another opportunity, as a conviction would give grounds to programmed expelling for the delegate kickboxer.
He was persuaded that Antolik would in any case be in threat from degenerate Czech experts and the man he helped convict of murder on the off chance that he were expelled back to the Czech Republic.
“I am fulfilled that your underlying false applications were because of you making the best choice, not the wrong thing, and besides, had you been blunt with the specialists when you initially came here, it appears to be plain that you would have been conceded a work allow and, at last, home in any occasion, all alone merits.”
After four years, Antolik was sentenced on the Ecstasy charge.
In engaging the medication conviction, Antolik asserted the police and Customs examination was insufficient.
On the off chance that directed appropriately, Antolik said the examination could have discovered a “sensible probability” the 5kg of MDMA was planted to outline him.
Reprisal, by the individual he helped convict of murder in the Czech Republic, was the thought process given for the asserted surrounding.
The Court of Appeal dismissed new proof about the seals on the compartment, in which the medications were found, and whether they could be altered to influence it to look as though they were bolted.
This would enable somebody to open the compartment, after it was “fixed”, at that point plant the medications.
Regardless of whether this confirmation had been given at Antolik’s trial, the Court of Appeal was not persuaded it would change the result.
Nobody was tipped off about the shipment which would be likely in the event that somebody was attempting to outline Antolik.
“The jury was qualified for dismiss Mr Antolik’s evidence….as essentially not dependable.
“That Mr Antolik was indicted following the jury’s consistent decision essentially mirrors that the Crown had a solid case and the jury was qualified for finish up the barrier hypothesis was unrealistic.”
The Ecstasy conviction isn’t the primary brush with the law for the previous delegate kickboxer.
It can likewise be uncovered that Antolik was captured in Operation Ark, an incognito examination concerning Ecstasy simple pills, days after his false identification trial in 2011.
He was later sentenced being a gathering to the produce of Class-C controlled medications, despite the fact that the conviction was later upset on a specialized ground.

The individual he purchased the pills from was Jeremy Hamish Kerr, later indicted as the 1080 blackmailer and who additionally conceded squeezing the pills sold to Antolik.
The pills and the 5kg of Ecstasy, worth around $375,000, are the reason for a police relinquishment application to seize “corrupted property”, including cash from offer of Antolik’s $800,000 home.
Antolik had additionally been beforehand absolved of conferring an irritated burglary with two individuals from the Hells Angels.
