The bail ruling of prominent Suva lawyer Shazran Abdul Lateef and Zoe Moore who were allegedly found with drugs will be delivered by Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa later this morning.

Lateef and Moore are  in remand.

They are both charged with one count each of being found in possession of 7.89 grams of methamphetamine, one count each of being found in possession of 12.49 grams of cocaine and one count each of being found in possession of 2.5 grams of marijuana.

They were arrested following a raid at a home in Nailuva on Sunday. Lateef is represented by Filimoni Vosarogo and Moore is represented by Legal Aid.

Police Prosecutor, Sergeant Prarthna Devi has objected to bail, and says that Lateef and Moore have other similar cases pending before the court.
