A pair of east Oxford men will stand trial next year accused of dealing cannabis.

Appearing before Oxford Crown Court on Tuesday afternoon, Mubinur Rahman, 23, of Westfield Close, and Hassan Makki, 21, of Cosin Close, pleaded not guilty to possession with intent to supply cannabis in Oxford on July 8, 2020.

Rahman denied possession of £234 in ‘dirty’ cash linked to criminal conduct, while his co-defendant denied a similar charge relating to possession of £270 cash.

Judge Nigel Daly granted both men bail to return to the crown court on May 30 next year for their trial.

The case is expected to last between three and four days.
