Mombasa - Police in Mombasa have been granted 14 days to investigate nine crew members of the MV AL Noor ship that was seized on Kenyan waters.

The nine Pakistani nationals appeared before Senior principal Magistrate Justice Kituko to answer to charges of drug trafficking.

The prosecutor, Eugene Wangila however sought orders to have the nine remanded at the port police station for 14 days to enable police complete their investigations before they could be charged before the court.

“The nine were arrested after police intercepted their ship on Kenyan waters and suspected it to be ferrying drugs. Police have already found 974g of heroine that is worth KES 2 992 000. Your Honor, this is an indication that there could be more of the drugs and that why we need these days,” said Wangila.

The defense lawyer, Pascal Nabwana had no objection to the prosecution's request.

“My clients are not of Kenyan origin and they do not have families in this country. I pray to this court that my clients be allowed to communicate to their families and access to their personal belongings like clothing,” said Pascal.

Pascal said one of the crew member was founded death mysteriously in the ship and other two crew members had signs of sickness and are requesting for medical examination.

Justice Kituko ordered that the accused persons be remanded at the port police where they will be allowed access to medical examination, personal hygiene and communication with their next of kin.

The case will be mentioned on July 24, 2014.
