Court burns cocaine found on British girls 8/23/2007
Accra, Aug 22, GNA - A juvenile court on Wednesday destroyed the six kilograms of cocaine alleged to have been found on the two 16-year-old British girls currently on trial for attempting to smuggle the substance out of the country.

The court adjourned the case to Wednesday, August 29. The girls were arrested on July 2, 2007 at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) when they were going through formalities to travel on a British Airways flight to London.

The substance believed to be cocaine was found concealed in two laptop bags they were carrying.

They have since been charged with two counts of possessing and attempting to traffic illegal substance out of the country. If convicted, the girls faced at least three years imprisonment each.

During interrogation, the girls alleged that one Farham Timothy, alias Fire, sent them to Ghana to meet two men Kwame and Emmanuel for the bags containing the substances to be brought to him for a fee of 6,000 pounds.

Police are still searching for those persons as well as one Jay, also resident in the UK and was allegedly involved in the deal.Source:
