A 48-year-old Malaysian national was released on bail by the Nadi Magistrates Court yesterday in regards to drug charges.

Harcharan Singh, a Fiji Link pilot, appeared before Magistrate Chandhani Dias was charged with one count of unlawful possession of illicit drug.

The accused was found in possession of 7.8 grams of Cannabis Sativa or Indian hemp at one of the resorts in Nadi, Police alleged..

The accused was represented by lawyer Mosese Raratabu of K Law Chambers while Constable Dinesh Chand represented the Police prosecution.

Mr Raratabu asked the court to defer the plea to a later date.

Constable Chand asked the court to place a travel ban on the accused as he is likely to evade the criminal justice system.

Magistrate Dias released the accused on a $1000 surety bail bond with a $1000 cash bail.

The accused will reappear at the Nadi Magistrate Court on April 22.
