APIA: MONDAY 5 MAY 2013: A couple believed to be facing charges related to alleged importation of the drug ice, entered pleas of not guilty plea through their lawyer.

The charges were not read out in Court.

Scott Thomas Barlow and wife Makerita Chan Chui Barlow were granted bail today.

Both were placed in custody, but Makerita Barlow was released last week because of their young children.

Scott Barlow was today granted bail on the condition he surrendered all travel documents and to sign in at the Apia police station  on  Mondays and Thursdays until the matter comes up before the court again on 5 August.

The same bail conditions were imposed on his wife.

Asked to clarify the number of charges and what they were, Prosecutor Precious Chang said the media would have to go to the Attorney General for permission to be told what they were.
