The three men believed to have murdered high ranking customs officer Nigel Christian in 2020 have pleaded not guilty.

Lasean Bully of Cashew Hill; Wayne Thomas of Hatton; and Saleim Harrigan of Greenbay appeared in the High Court this morning and were arraigned before Justice Ann-Marie Smith.

They are implicated in the killing of Christian that occurred on July 10, 2020.

The 44-year-old was abducted from his McKinnons home and was found hours later in the Thibou’s area riddled with bullets.

The men having denied the allegations, will stand trial possibly later this year.

Attorney Andrew O’Kola represents both Bully and Harrigan, and Sherfield Bowen is Thomas’ lawyer.
