Woman to stand trial for drug importation

A 27-year-old woman was bailed after she denied importing cannabis and possessing the drug with intent to supply when she appeared in Magistrates’ Court this morning.

Tahiyya Muwwakkil, of Broken Hill Lane, Hamilton Parish, allegedly imported 2,221g of cannabis in St George’s on August 14 last year.

The court heard that the drugs could have been worth about $112,000 on the streets.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo granted $15,000 bail with one surety, under the condition that she surrender her travel documents, not leave the jurisdiction of Bermuda without permission of the court and reports to Police three times a week.

A trial date was set for May 12.
