Kenya: Briton on Cocaine Trafficking Charges Gets Bail

Friday, 12 August 2016 05:52 AM

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Kenyan judge has ruled that a British national charged with trafficking nearly 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of cocaine should be released on bail.

Jack Alexander Wolf Marrian should be released on bail of $690,000 cash, with two Kenyan sureties of similar amount.

High Court Judge Luka Kimaru ruled Friday that the prosecution did not provide compelling reasons to hold Marrian in custody.

British media have reported that Marrian is the grandson of an aristocrat, the sixth Earl Cawdor.

Marrian was arrested after Kenyan police and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents impounded the drugs on July 27 in Mombasa, Kenya's Indian Ocean port, in a container carrying sugar to Uganda from Brazil.
