Packaging Plant Manager Jailed For Cocaine In Coconut Milk

(The Daily Herald): GEORGETOWN, Guyana--The Manager of an East Coast Demerara packaging plant on Thursday pleaded guilty to conspiracy for trafficking in a quantity of cocaine in coconut milk that was intercepted in Malaysia earlier this month.

A former employee of the same company, New So Coco, pleaded not guilty to being in possession of two sealed tins of cocaine-in- coconut milk and he was remanded to prison.

Loknauth Danesur of 1 Coldingen, East Coast Demerara pleaded guilty to trafficking in an unknown quantity of cocaine and he was sentenced to four years imprisonment and fined GUY$30,000.

Chief Magistrate, Priya Sewnarine Beharry noted that Danesur, who was the manager of the packaging plant, did not waste the court's time and he pleaded guilty.

Customs Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) Prosecutor, Oswald Massiah told the court that between August 1 and November 20, Danesur, using his expertise, conspired to conceal the narcotic in coconut milk cans.

Danesur told the court that he had no idea where the cocaine was going but he had been paid GUY$100,000 to do the job and had been promised GUY$1 million more when the cocaine would have reached its destination. He said he needed the money because he has three children and he was working for insufficient money.
