The Pre-trial Conference (PTC) for the Australian Couple allegedly involved in the importation of $40 million worth of illicit drugs along with undeclared firearms and ammunition has been shifted to the 25th of September this month.

Defence Lawyer Ronald Gordon requested the court that the case is expedited since a lot of time had already passed.

The state requested for more time since the officer in charge of the case had gone abroad.

“It’s a little disconcerting my Lord given that we have been pushing for a hearing date and we are now finding that the State is taking more time in finalizing the pre-trial matters,” said Mr Gordon.

The remand period for the two accused Yvette Nikolai and John Nikolai has been extended.
