Seion Odinga Brammer appeared in a city court before Magistrate Judy Latchman to answer to the charge that on May 13, at 8 Avenue, Diamond Housing Scheme, he had in his possession 464 grammes of cannabis for trafficking.

Brammer, a carpenter, pleaded not guilty to the offence.

Prosecutor Kerry Bostwick objected to bail. He also stated that the police are ready to commence the trial and will be calling three witnesses to testify in the matter.

When given the opportunity to speak, Brammer, a 34-year-old father of two, told the court that the police were trying to frame him for his brother, Rawle who was recently sentenced by the very magistrate to three years in jail for a similar offence.

He added that he is the sole breadwinner for his family and has no purpose in jail, especially for something he has nothing to do with.

Brammer was, nevertheless, denied bail and remanded to prison.

The matter will be called again on June 1, when the trial is expected to commence.
