Vakula pleads not guilty to importation of illicit drugs charge

27‑year‑old Sera Vakula who is charged with one count of importation of illicit drugs has been remanded in custody by High Court Judge Justice Salesi Temo. Vakula pleaded not guilty to the charge.

State lawyer submitted that the case can be dealt in the Magistrates Court considering the weight of the drugs. Defense shared similar sentiments. Justice Temo will rule on the submission on the 18th of next month.

Vakula was allegedly found with 27.4 grams of methamphetamine which was concealed inside a shampoo bottle last December. The package was sent from the United States.
