Prison bars no bar for facebooking drug dealer
Suspected drug dealer David Driham has been updating his Facebook status from inside his prison cell in Goa.

Panaji: Prison bars brook no stopping for suspected Israeli drug dealer David Driham alias Dudu as far as updating his latest developments on social networking portal Facebook is concerned.

Arrested for possessing a narcotics cocktail of ecstacy, cocaine, heroine, LSD and charas of Rs.3.81 lakh (about $ 8,000) Feb 21, Dudu has been updating his friends using Facebook mobile from behind prison bars.

His first entry begins with a statement of love for his fiance Zarine Driham, a Kazakhstan national, uploaded on his wall April 15, 2010 at 11.33 a.m.

"My baby I love you so much… my fiancé," Dudu said.

Dudu also regularly updates his friends with the latest developments about his criminal case, who have responded to him with complimentary messages wishing him well and luck in his trial.

"Come on bro Aba"ah truth will come and you will be with us here and keep you fingers curls !!!!!!!" says Nahari Eyal, a friend of Dudu's from Herzliya, Israel.

Jude Yhudit Azulay, a photographer based in Ramat Gen, Israel, says: "Atonement for you... All miss you, and keep you fingers crossed."

Dudu sister Ayala Driham, who spends six months of a year in Goa, also asks her brother to hold out. Her advice to Dudu, who has been arrested twice on drug charges, is: "Has one and only God in heaven do not lie to him ........... .... Should not lie at all our lives whole."

Dudu has also uploaded several photos of his Valentine's Day celebration with his fiancé, which was incidentally a few days before his arrest.

Accessing the internet or mobile phones is against prison regulations. Dudu is presently lodged in the Aguada Central jail, 12 km from Panaji.

District prison officials refused to comment when asked how an undertrial could update his Facebook wall via mobile web when lodged in a prison cell.

"The assembly session (that began Monday) is on. We cannot say anything on the issue," a prison official said.
