Attorney – at – law George Thomas represented the accused and told the court that his client no longer owns the stall at Merimans Mall in which the illegal items were found and as such his client does not have care, custody and control of the items, since the stall is now owned by someone else.
However, the police prosecutor disclosed that the accused indeed has control of the stall. Based on the information presented in court, the Magistrate refused bail and Mark Brown will return to court on July 31. [Royan Abrams]
