Soldiers in Davos on coke

Today, 16:12

Twelve Swiss soldiers who are responsible for the security at the World Economic Forum in Davos have used drugs. This was confirmed by a spokesman for the army to the Swiss daily Corriere del Ticino.

The military are said to have used cocaine and cannabis during their service. The drug use came to light when one of their colleagues told authorities.

The cocaine users are sent back home by their superiors. A soldier who had more than 3 grams in his possession must report to a court. The soldiers who had smoked a joint may finish their work in Davos and then they also will have to report to their boss.

Shooting incident

Besides drug use a soldier at Davos also accidentally let go off his firearm. A colleague suffered hearing damage from that, but no one else was hurt.

At the World Economic Forum, a conference with the big bosses of big companies, politicians and many other influential people, some 5,000 soldiers from the Swiss army have been deployed to provide additional security.
