Jamaica: Duo deny kidnap charges

The two St Andrew businessmen who were arrested and charged with kidnapping and thrashing a customs broker after a multimillion-dollar drug shipment, said to be theirs, was confiscated, are accusing the broker of fabricating the story about being abducted.

The men are also distancing themselves from the shipment of cocaine, which has a street value of US$363,000 – or approximately J$54.4 million – and was destined for the United Kingdom.

The accused, Ainsley Chance, 60, an operator of an investment training company, of Stillwell Road, and Wayne South, 55, property developer of Armour Heights, both in Kingston 8, categorically denied the allegations against them when they appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Tuesday.

They were each offered $250,000 bail.
