Earl’s grandson bailed…

Hello and hi. Well now, all that money and no sense. Allow me to explain. Jack Marrian, the grandson of the 6th Earl Cawdor was recently charged in Kenya with trafficking nearly 220lb of cocaine. He was released on £533, 200 bail, last friday. Slowclap. Lucky duck. There are few of us who could come up with that sort of bail money. Come. on.  In addition, Kenyan Roy Francis Mwanthi was also charged with trafficking and he was freed on £228,000 bond.  Apparently, the Nairobi court judge said the prosecution did NOT offer good reason to hold Mr. Marrian.

Marrian, 31, was arrested in the Kenyan port of Mombasa in a joint operation by the local police and the US Drug Enforcement Agency. He was subsequently charged with trafficking 220lb of cocaine disguised as sugar from Brazil en route to Uganda. This amount of narcotics has a street value exceeding 598 million Kenyan shillings or £4.5 million. The Bristol university graduate and sugar trader seemed composed as he appeared in court. His lawyers said police had arrested “the wrong man.” Maybe. Maybe not. Marrian is the grandson of a Scottish aristocrat and has lived in Kenya since he was 4 years old.

If anything, he should be locked up for being so easy on the eyes. Oh my word.

 

The 6th Earl Cawdor

Hugh John Vaughan Carrol Campbell, 6th Earl Cawdor (1932-1993) was an aristocrat and a land owner. Of course he was.  Campbell was the son of John Campbell, 5th Earl Cawdor and Wilma Mairi Vickers. He studied at Eton College, Magdalen College, Oxford and the Royal Agricultural College. Wow. Respect.

He held office of High Sheriff of Carmarthenshire in 1964. Although his ancient title is of the Scottish nobility-he lived in Wales, until his father’s death in 1970-which meant he inherited the family estates in Scotland. Below is the Earl of Cawdor arms. Let’s hope the chap-Marrian, can stay out of prison. That is all.

Cheers
