Eight on trial for alleged cocaine home-delivery service 

Eight people were on trial on Friday in Berlin for allegedly running a professional cocaine delivery service.

A motion to have the indictment not read out in court was rejected on day one of the trial, which is taking place at the Urania Berlin events venue under strict security measures.

The alternative venue was picked to allow for social-distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The suspects, aged between 19 and 39, were accused of carrying out 301 deliveries of almost 375 packs of mixed cocaine in 92 days between the end of July and mid-November in 2019.

They were said to have raked in 15,000 euros ($17,700).

The orders were placed via telephone and delivered in cars, according to prosecutors.

Some of the drivers apparently did not have a driving licence.
