The Australian couple who are alleged to have been involved in the unlawful importation of illicit drugs and ammunition in Denarau last month will appear at the Lautoka High Court today.
45-year-old John Nikolic who was discharged from hospital has been charged with one count of unlawful importation of illicit drugs, one count of unlawful possession of illicit drugs and one count of failure to declare arms and ammunition to a customs officer.
His wife Yvettee Nikolic also faces similar charges.
Officials seized thirteen bricks of Cocaine weighing 15 kilograms as well as Ecstasy tablets with an estimated value of 20 to 30 million dollars from the yacht.
They also found $30,000 in undeclared currency, guns and ammunition on board.
Yvette is expected to make her bail application today.
They’re yet to take a plea.
