£600000 cannabis operation accused remanded in custody


The alleged head of a cannabis growing operation worth more than £600,000 must remain in custody, a High Court judge has ruled. Luong Bui, 41, is accused of running factories across Northern Ireland, including one warehouse which allegedly had living quarters for his employees. The PSNI seized 1,200 cannabis plants during a raid on an industrial unit in Comber, County Down last year. Smaller factories were also uncovered in Belfast and Coalisland. At the High Court, Mr Justice Maguire refused bail and rejected suggestions of delays in the case. Mr Bui, of Lisburn Road in Belfast, is facing charges of conspiracy to supply and produce Class B drugs, being concerned in their production, possessing criminal property, dishonestly using electricity, and assisting unlawful immigration. £600000 cannabis operation accused remanded in custody
