Netflix ordered to remove sex scene after drug trafficker complains

Netflix has been ordered to remove sex scene from one of its shows following a complaint from a drug trafficker.The streaming giant was forced to pay the drug dealer thousands of pounds over a scene in drama Cocaine Coast that depicts a sex scene between him and his wife.Laureano Oubiña, 78, who was imprisoned for drug trafficking and money laundering, successfully sued Netflix for €15,000 (£12,696) for invasion of privacy at a court in Spain.The judge presiding over the case also told Netflix that they should axe the scene, which plays during the opening moments of the series.Oubiña previously launched proceedings against Netflix upon Cocaine Coast’s release, alleging that the series caused him “moral damage.” He was seeking €1.5million (£1.26m) in damages.In 2023, Oubiña’s lawyer said: “The life of Mr Laureano Oubiña has worsened considerably since the broadcast of this series because he is portrayed as a person capable of taking the life of another, violent, sexist, a cocaine trafficker, impotent, vicious, unfaithful, a bad father, a bad husband, a brute, foolish, vengeful, an abuser of women, ignorant and a mafioso.”However, these claims were dismissed by the court.The judge said ruled that a project “inspired by reality” cannot be subject to a “demand for veracity.” They also added that the character of Oubiña in the show was not “very different” from both the image and “conduct” he presented himself.Cocaine Coast is based on the rise of drug clans in Galicia in the 1980s and 1990s.A synopsis of the show on Netflix reads: “In 1980s Galicia, Spain, a young fisherman becomes a prosperous cocaine smuggler by providing Latin American suppliers with a European entry point.”
