Tears streamed down the face of Virginia Julien in court on Monday morning as she and her brother Oswald Julien were denied bail for drug charges.
They appeared before Chief Magistrate Evalina Baptiste.
Both defendants are to appear in court on the 12th and 26th of November to answer to the charges of conspiracy to import 165,710 grams of cannabis into Dominica, possession of cannabis and possession with intent to supply.
The cannabis was allegedly found at the home of Virginia Julien on July 11th in Lagoon, Loubiere.
Wayne Norde, attorney for the two accused, requested that they be granted bail on the account that Virgina has small children who have been suffering since her arrest last Wednesday.
However the prosecution objected to bail stating that they were still in search of two suspects in the matter. Inspector Claude Weekes also told the court that although the offences were bailable, the quantity of drugs is worth about $365,000.
Magistrate Baptiste told the accused that she was denying bail to give the police more time to do their work.
