Suva Lawyer Shazran Lateef and co-accused Zoe Maharaj Moore have been granted bail by the Suva Magistrates Court.
Both have been charged with three counts of being in possession of illicit drugs.
The two were granted bail as the magistrate said that both do not have previous absconding bail instances.
Moore had also informed the court that the women’s remand center is overcrowded.
Both accused have been released on a $500 surety bond and $500 cash bond.
They have been told not to re-offend and not to change their residential address.
A curfew from 6pm to 6am has also been fixed.
Magistrate Jioji Boseiwaqa said Lateef has been charged for the fourth time and his sureties need to ensure that he does not re-offend.
It is alleged that last Sunday, Lateef, and Moore had in their possession 7.89 grams of Methamphetamine, 12.49 grams of Cocaine and 2.5 grams of Marijuana.
The case will be recalled on September 12th for mention.
