Taxi owner tells court he uses `ecstasy’ for sex

Kapildea Ramsawak

THE owner of EZEE Runnings Taxi Service was on Tuesday remanded to prison after denying being in possession of ecstasy, for the purpose of trafficking.
Kapildea Ramsawak, 34, of Campbellville appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court to answer two charges.

Particulars of the first charge, alleged that Ramsawak on November 10 at Lodge, had 496 grams of cannabis in his possession for the purpose of trafficking. It is further alleged that on the said date, at Campbellville , he had 2.6 grams of ecstasy in his possession.

Police Prosecutor, Dylon Bess opposed bail being granted to Ramsawak on the grounds of the seriousness of the charges. According to Bess, on the day in question the police raided a shop in the Lodge area and saw Ramsawak running from the business place. He was pursued and arrested. Ramsawak was searched and the alleged cannabis was found in his possession.

Ramsawak was then taken to his Campbellville home and the ecstasy was found in his bedroom. The prosecution further disclosed that Ramsawak told the ranks that he uses the ecstasy for ‘sexual purposes’. The magistrate however remanded the accused for the trafficking of cannabis matter and granted him $25,000 bail for the one in relation to the ecstasy possession.

Ramsawak , however, will return to court today (Wednesday) as both matters will again be called up.
