Attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens has put the prosecution on notice – have the file ready in the matter of three non-nationals accused of importing over $700 000 worth of cannabis or she will be asking for the charges to be dismissed.

Jackson, 41, of Questelles, St Vincent; Ollivierre, 40, of La Pomp, Bequia and King, 26, of Mt Pleasant, Bequia, are accused of having 176.9 kilogrammes of cannabis; having a traffickable quantity of the drug; having it with intent to supply and importing the drug on April 27, this year.

Jackson was represented by attorney Mitchell-Gittens; Ollivierre by Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim and Latisha Springer and King by attorney Martie Garnes.
