Four more witnesses are expected to testify in the trial of popular Tik Toker Lisa Ramnarine, who is accused of trafficking cocaine in several religious items.
Senior Magistrate Leron Daly is presiding over the trial at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and would have heard the testimony of one witness thus far. Attorney-at-law Bernard Dasilva is representing the alleged drug trafficker.
Ramnarine of Hague, West Coast Demerara (WCD) had pleaded not guilty to the charge, which stated that on June 7, 2022, at DHL Express, 50 Fifth Street, Alberttown, Georgetown, she had 540 grams of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
The 20-year-old is currently on remand and will make another court appearance on September 21, 2022.
MTV News Update previously reported that ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU), acting on information received, went to DHL Headquarters, where they intercepted a parcel containing a Hindu Havan Kund, as well as other religious items.
Upon examining the items, the suspected cocaine was found in a hidden compartment of the Kund. The sender’s information was retrieved by ranks, leading to Ramnarine’s arrest.
She was escorted to CANU’s Headquarters, where the item was dismantled in her presence, and tested positive for cocaine.
