Media workers slapped with Drug Trafficking Charge

Two members of the media profession, taken into police custody last Thursday shortly after getting off one of the inter-island ferries from the sister island of Carriacou on drug related suspicions have been placed on forty thousand dollars bail. 

Sources told this newspaper, that shortly after detaining the two men, 26-year-old Ahkir Abdulaheem, attached to the Government Information Service and Joel Liverpool Aka Outlaw, attached to Boss FM, the lawmen that were acting on special intelligence arrested and charged them with trafficking the controlled drug, cocaine.

According to our information, a search by the police into items allegedly belonging to the two uncovered some one-kilo of the banned drug hidden in some sealed plastic bags.

The two men, represented by defence counsel Peter David appeared before Magistrate Francine Foster on Tuesday at the Number Three Magistrate Court in St George’s for the purpose of bail. 

  Meanwhile, apart from asking the court that certain conditions be put in place in the event that the court is minded, the prosecution opted not to object to the request; bail was therefore set in the sum of $40,000.00 with two sureties.

According to information emanating from the court, the street value of the drug involved in last Thursday’s seizure was given as just over one hundred thousand dollars.  

 Both men were however required to surrender all travel documents and report to the Central Police Station every Monday and Friday between the hours of 6 am and 6 pm until the matter is disposed of.

 The men are due to make their second court appearance before Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill at the St. George’s Number One Magistrate’s Court on November 2 2017.

If convicted they face heavy fines or in excess of five years in prison.
