TWO men have appeared in court as the first people charged in connection with the illegal rave in East Croydon. Kamil Kurek, 25, of London Road, Norbury, appeared before magistrates on Monday and pleaded guilty to possession of Class A drugs. Kurek was told he would not have to pay a fine due to the length of time he had spent in custody. A charge of violent disorder was withdrawn. Ishamel Addo, 21, of Sanderstead Road, Sanderstead, was charged with violent disorder, assault on a police officer and possession of class B drugs. He appeared at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court on Monday and was given conditional bail until a trial in Croydon on September 4. Fifteen people have so far been arrested for various offences connected to Saturday's rave at the former Royal Mail delivery office. Two men, aged 47 and 30, were cautioned for possession of class A drugs. Five others were bailed pending further inquiries. Police have yet to release updates on five men arrested for criminal damage and an 18-year-old who handed himself in to a police station yesterday on suspicion of violent disorder.
