Man charged with selling MDMA

AN ISRAELI national living in Ballina remains on conditional bail after being charged with selling MDMA.

Zohar Kohavi, 27, appeared in Lismore Local Court this week charged with five drug offences, including driving at Byron Bay when under the influence of the drug MDMA on August 24 last year.

Kohavi, a restaurant worker, is charged with the supply of 80 MDMA pills (16.9 grams) at Byron Bay on August 24, possession of a prohibited drug, dealing with the suspected proceeds of crime ($1525 cash) and possession of cannabis seeds.

Kohavi, who has been in Australia since June 2006, is on a bridging visa waiting for temporary residency.

As part of his bail conditions he must report daily to Ballina police.

Defence lawyer Paul Smart said his client had surrendered his passport.

The case was adjourned to February 1.
