Man gets 5 years prison, $237million court fine for 194lbs cocaine in fish

Kapil Haresh Thakurian, 32-years-old, from Enmore/Foulis, East Coast Demerara was today sentenced to five years in prison, and fined $237million for possession of some 194 lbs of cocaine found in fish at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

Thakurian was sentenced today by City Magistrate Leron Daly.

Thakurian was charged last August and pleaded not guilty to the charge.

When Thakurian was charged, his lawyer, Peter Hugh, said his client had no knowledge that the drugs were in the seafood.

When the bust was made last year, police had said in a statement that ranks of the Police Narcotics Branch intercepted a cargo shipment of thirty-five boxes of seafood, eight of which contained a total of 88.2 kilos of cocaine, or 194 lbs.

      Bad advice to the Granger Administration.
      That will not make Obama happy.

        Mr Granger pledged to restore law and order…I won’t comment on his lack of success. Illicit drugs are still in the pipelines and available to those afflicted, wreaking havoc in families. The sad part is drug addiction is a preventable disease which can be eliminated by any government which is adamant in its elimination.
