Magistrates Court Grants Bail For Fisherman

A fisherman, who was al­legedly found carrying $23,000 worth of metham­phetamine in his car, was granted bail by the Magistrates Court in Labasa yesterday.

Rajinesh Roneel Prasad, 39, charged with one count of unlaw­ful possession of illicit drugs ap­peared before Magistrate Cama Tuberi.

He informed the court that he would engage a private lawyer.

No plea was taken.

Labasa Police Prosecutor didn’t object to bail.

Magistrate Tuberi released the accused on strict bail conditions.

It was heard that the Police stopped the accused on Thursday morning last week at the James Madhavan Street junction in La­basa.

They searched the car and found small clear plastic bags contain­ing white crystals believed to be methamphetamine.

The case has been adjourned for mention on February 10.
