Guyana: Linden man jailed, fined $1.7M over cocaine in fudge

A Linden labourer was yesterday sentenced to four years in jail and fined $1.7 million after he was charged with attempting to traffic cocaine in fudge.

Shaka Nunes, 36, of Maxwell Alley, Christian-burg, Linden, was initially charged alongside his wife, Vanica Williams, of the same address, but the charge against her was withdrawn after he pleaded guilty and maintained that she had no knowledge of his actions.

The couple appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in George-town, where the charge was read to them.
