By Aaron Humes: Three 20 foot containers containing the controversial imported rice from Guyana arrived at the Big Creek Port in Independence Village at 5 this morning and as of now are still awaiting clearance.
Reports from the scene say importer Jack Charles has yet to arrive. The Government has said that Charles does not have a permit to import and have threatened to confiscate the shipment.
More will be posted shortly.
