Woman awarded $240,000 after being framed by police for cocaine trafficking

A mother of two from Princes Town, who was framed by police for cocaine trafficking after they extorted $100,000 from her husband, has been awarded $240,000 in compensation. 

Delivering a 48-page judgement on Thursday, High Court Judge Margaret Mohammed ordered the damages for Anisha Raffick, of Borde Narve Village, Princes Town, as she upheld her malicious prosecution and false imprisonment claim against the State. 

Mohammed said she found Raffick's version of what transpired when she was arrested in November 2013, more plausible than the police's.
