Unforgettable encounters

A clip from Jailed Abroad - Delhi.National Geographic presents Jailed Abroad every Monday night at 10 pm. On February 8, watch Conned In Quito.

In 2003, Zoe McGarry’s life changed forever after a chance encounter with a man called Tony. She met him in Nigeria while visiting the country with her Nigerian husband Olu, and they all became close friends. Tony had family in London and Zoe and Olu invited him to stay in their house. But within months his personality started to change, he was no longer the happy, warm person they once knew. And then, one day, he just disappeared.

A few months later, he called Zoe from Ecuador begging her for help to renew his visa so he could return to the UK and make a fresh start. Eventually, Tony persuaded Zoe to visit him to help with his paperwork. But once there, Tony’s behaviour proved untrustworthy. He avoided visiting the embassy every time she brought the subject up. They visited a local tourist market where Zoe bought several souvenirs. Tony gave her a rucksack to carry them home in.

Eventually after four days, Zoe decided to return to London, but never made it. As she boarded the flight home, police caught her and discovered 2.6 kilograms of cocaine in the lining of the rucksack that Tony had given her. She was locked up and despite crying out for her innocence, was given a 16-year jail term in a Quito jail. After serving four years, she was released on parole and finally returned home to her native Ireland. Tony was never caught or brought to trial.
