The trial of Indian Muskan Balaggan and American Elton Xhemali, who have been jointly charged with attempted export of drugs, has been adjourned till Wednesday due to the delay in an expert witness flying into Nadi.

State lawyer Ilisapeci Whippy requested an adjournment due to the unavailability of a key prosecution witness who was expected to give testimony today.

Whippy said the witness was to fly into Fiji at the weekend but he would now only arrive on Tuesday morning due to a personal commitment and the unavailability of Sydney-Nadi flights.

Whippy said this was unforeseen and that the other foreign analyst is already in the country.

Xhemali’s lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo and Balaggan who is representing herself, did not object.

Justice Daniel Goundar adjourned the matter until Wednesday morning.

Balaggan and Xhemali are charged with transportation of an unknown quantity of cocaine through Nadi International Airport on January 26, last year.

The two accused have denied all charges.

The two are jointly charged with one count of attempted exportation of illicit drugs from Nadi International Airport.

On the second count, Balaggan is charged with unlawful possession of illicit drugs. It is alleged that the two attempted to export 521.6 grams of pure cocaine from Nadi International Airport.
