More than a week ago, twenty-one Chinese nationals were taken into police custody for 68 kilos of cocaine found on board their vessel. But they were never charged and remanded to the Bahamas Department of Corrections, which is procedural.
The 68 kilos of cocaine were reported to be valued at $1.3 million and were discovered on a cargo vessel at Nassau Container Port. The Royal Bahamas Police Force in collaboration with the United States Department of Homeland Security intercepted the group.
Police Press Liaison Officer Audley Peters said twenty men and one woman were arrested after their arrival from South America. Peters said the police would further their investigations.
But we heard nothing more.
CSJ Report understands the country’s correctional institution made preparations like organizing the prison cells to receive the large group, but their efforts were fruitless since the Chinese nationals were never imprisoned for the drug find.
Questions arise: Were they given special treatment? Were they deported instead of facing charges?
