A reformed gangster who said his criminal past was behind him is awaiting sentence for trying to smuggle mobile phone sim cards and heroin into prison.
Mikey Giwa was a prominent member of the notorious Don't Say Nothing gang, whose members have been jailed for offences including armed burglary and robbery.
In an interview with the Croydon Guardian in May , he claimed he had turned his back on crime and was working as a mentor with anti-knives organisation Lives Not Knives (LNK).
But the 23-year-old who has served time for affray, now faces another spell behind bars after he was caught trying to smuggle three mobile phone sim cards and a wrap of heroin into a friend he was visiting at Belmarsh prison on November 1, last year.
He was remanded in custody until his sentencing on August 9.
