Discussing the news

We have threads on specific subjects, thought perhaps we could have a general thread to discuss other news items.

One that I read this morning was related to Irish sprinter Leon Reid being found guilty of letting his flat being used to produce cocaine. From what I read of the article he sub-let the flat (to another athlete) and I couldn’t see it said he knew anything of the activities taking place as he was off at a training camp.

Does that mean a landlord can be found guilty for things a tenant does in their property? Or did I just miss the part and he did know what was going on?

Sounds like Section 8 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971

Looks like you have to know about illegal activities and do nothing about it. There must be loads of Landlords who unknowingly have illegal activities going on in their properties!
