Businessman Emile Sanowar is expected to appear before a Port of Spain Magistrate on allegations of firearm and ammunition possession.

Sanowar was one of 20 men who were detained by police on Monday morning following a party at a house on Lady Chancellor Road.

He was charged late Tuesday by officers of the Port-of-Spain Division.

He is being represented by a team of attorneys including Jagdeo Singh and Renuka Rambachan.

Another man is expected to appear on allegations of possession of cocaine, while a third man is aiding with inquiries.

The 17 other men have since been released.

Police said in the operation on Monday morning, officers of the Special Operations Response Team (SORT) raided the house, and found 22-women.
