A Chinese national who was charged with one count of being found in possession of illicit drugs appeared at the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

Xi Ming Ying appeared before Magistrate Waleen George yesterday.

It is alleged that on Sep­tember 19, 2018, she was found in possession of 0.03 grams of methampheta­mine at a massage parlour in Tamavua, Suva.

Defence lawyer Jitendra Reddy told the court that the accused needed a Man­darin interpreter to assist her in court proceedings.

He said the accused had been served with the full disclosures.

Magistrate George told the court that the inter­preter was out of the coun­try and would be back next month.

The matter was adjourned to October 31 for mention to check on the interpreter.

Xi’s bail has been extend­ed.
