cocaine in timberTwo persons were today arraigned in the Georgetown Magistrate Court in that multi-million dollar drug bust at Soesdyke.

The men charged are Raymond Ghanny and Dominique Walsh of Lot 1 soesdyke. Both men pleaded not guilty to the charge that they trafficked nearly 692 pounds of cocaine.

The charge came several weeks after the bust was made by the GRA and CANU and the men were each granted $350,000 bail, when they appeared before Magistrate, Allan Wilson. The men will return to court on April 8.

Officials of CANU and the GRA found the cocaine in hollowed out timber, and believes it was destined for Europe.

The men were placed on station bail and had to report daily to the CANU as the investigators there tried to build a stronger case.

Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee had said, what was important in his opinion, was for CANU to build a strong case and have a proper investigation done.

CANU, however, believes that those apprehended are part of the circle, while the kingpins of the operation are yet to be identified.
