2kg Of Cocaine Missing From Police Custody, Case Discontinued

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Mr Christopher Pryde, filed a discontinuance (Nolle Prosequi) in the Lautoka High Court this morning.

Fredrick Epeli and Justin Ho were charged with one count of attempted unlawful exportation of illicit drugs.

It was alleged that on 23 December 2018, without lawful authority, they attempted to export 2015.7 grams of cocaine to Sydney, Australia.

The DPP filed a nolle prosequi this morning (08.12.20) at the Lautoka High Court to discontinue the proceedings after the drugs exhibit was found to be missing from the Namaka Police Station.

The Police have been advised and are conducting an investigation.
