Senior Justice Jon Isaacs has set a deadline of Friday for seized funds to be released to convicted drug trafficker Melvin Maycock Sr.
Police seized Maycock’s accounts when he was indicted as the Caribbean head of a multinational drug smuggling gang in 2004.
However, the court has authorized the release of some of that money to allow Maycock to pay legal expenses.
If this does not happen, Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade will have to explain his actions on May 27.
