A Trinidad-based Guyanese may not be able to return to the neighbouring island in the foreseeable future as planned, as he found himself arraigned before the court of Magistrate Fabayo Azore on Wednesday morning, following an allegation of trafficking in narcotics.
When he appeared before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, Terry Miles pleaded not guilty to the offence which alleged that on September 18, 2017, he was in possession of 270 grams of cannabis for trafficking purposes.
Police Prosecutor Simone Payne objected to bail on the grounds citing the seriousness and prevalence of the offence, coupled with the penalty attached for the breach of the prohibited act.
The thirty-nine-year-old unrepresented man was cut short when he attempted to explain his version of the events, however the court understands that he recently returned to Guyana and was temporarily residing at Rosignol (West Bank Berbice) during his time in the country. Miles indicated that he is currently unemployed and was expecting to return to Trinidad during the next month.
Bail was refused and the case stands adjourned to October, 4, 2017; Miles remains on remand until then.
