Albanian accused of supplying cocaine to appear at court
Magistrates hearing delayed for nearly two days due to lack of interpreter.
An Albanian accused of supplying cocaine, who spent nearly two days waiting in a Plymouth court for an interpreter, will face trial later this year.
Altin Domi, who has given his home address as Hounslow, appeared at Plymouth Magistrates' Court on Monday charged with being concerned in the supply of 250g of Class A cocaine.
No interpreter was available and the case was first put back to Monday afternoon before it was rescheduled to Tuesday morning.
The case was again put back to Tuesday afternoon until an interpreter was arranged to carry out the translation over-the-phone during the hearing.
Domi, aged 34, is accused of passing drugs to another man on August 2, 201,6 from the back of a taxi, after it had been couriered from London to Plymouth.
No pleas were offered and Domi was remanded into custody ahead of a plea and case management hearing at Plymouth Crown Court on May 14.
