High Court Judge, Justice Lyone Seneviratne will deliver his ruling on the 24th of next month in the case where the Director of Public Prosecutions has filed a restraining order on the $75,101.99 which is in the bank account of Tallat Rahman who was jailed for importing methamphetamine from Mexico into New Zealand.

60-year-old Rahman from Suva who had pleaded guilty to four charges of importing methamphetamine from Mexico into New Zealand after being identified in Operation Nova, a covert investigation targeting members of the Comancheros and their associates, has been sentenced to 16 years imprisonment by the Auckland District Court.

Rahman’s son Joshua Aziz Rahman was allegedly found with $31 million worth of cocaine in Caubati in February last year.

The DPP’s Office says they believe the money in the bank account is from proceeds of crime.

They have also indicated that they will be filing for forfeiture.

However, the lawyer for Tallat and Joshua Rahman, Ashneil Nadan has told the court that the money in the account is from the sale of the estate of Tallat’s late father.

Nadan also said that they intend to use the money for the legal costs of Joshua Aziz Rahman.
