Pre sentencing reports have been ordered into the lives of two Vincentian men who previously admitted to importing a large quantity of cannabis almost six years ago.
Last Friday Haynes Harry and Alwyn Ross also pleaded guilty in the No 2 Supreme Court to possession and trafficking of 632. 5 kilogrammes of cannabis on July 17, 2012.
Today Director of Public Prosecutions Donna Babb-Agard, QC, detailed the facts of the case before Justice Randall Worrell.
She reported that the illegal substance was fished out of the water by members of the Barbados Coast Guard after the vessel in which the men were travelling encountered difficulties in the country’s territorial waters.
The men, who are being represented by attorneys Marlon Gordon and Harry Husbands, have been on remand at HMP Dodds for the past six years.
Officials of the St Philip penal institution are expected to submit a report to the High Court on May 10 in preparation for their sentencing.
