Fmr. personal assistant slapped with drug trafficking charges

The former personal assistant to the Junior Agriculture Minister who is also a former drug enforcement agent, was on Friday slapped with drug trafficking charges.

The man, Kenroy Joseph was remanded to prison when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates Court. The police case is that Joseph worked along with two others in an attempt to smuggle over 40 pounds of cocaine through the Cheddi Jagan Airport.

The other two persons who were outgoing passengers to Canada were charged earlier this week and also remanded to prison. Joseph had been fingered in the VIP lounge bust and turned himself into police on Wednesday after a wanted bulletin was issued for him the previous day.

The prosecution team has indicated that other charges will be filed against Joseph. News Source understand that those charges might relate to the alleged forged documents that were presented to the airport last Friday which allowed the cocaine carrying couple access to the VIP lounge at the airport.

Joseph has declared his innocence but a number of persons who work at the airport have fingered him in the incident.
