UK: Vietnamese men appear in court after cannabis farm found


Two Vietnamese men have appeared in court following the discovery of a cannabis farm in County Down.

Quy Nguyen, 39, and Anh Nguyen, 35, appeared via video link at Lisburn Magistrates Court where they were each charged with four offences.

They are jointly accused of cultivating cannabis, simple possession of cannabis and having the class B drug with intent to supply on 3 February this year.

Quy Nguyen is further charged with illegal entry to the UK.

Anh Nguyen is accused of remaining in the UK beyond his permitted time.

Giving evidence to the court, a detective constable said he believed he could connect the men to their respective charges.

As neither of the defendants applied for bail, the judge remanded them both in custody and adjourned the case to 6 March.
