The two men who are both taxi drivers appeared before Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court where they pleaded not guilty to the charges which was read to them.
The Custom Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) stated that on April 26, 2019 at Camex Cargo Bond, Cheddie Jagan International Airport, they had 107.6 kg of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
Their respective attorneys made bail applications for bail to be granted since the drug was not found in their possession and more so, they had no knowledge of same.
