Sheree Halliday and her two sons Daren and Cody are in Spain for Philip's trial.

Philip Halliday has testified at his drug trafficking trial in Spain.

CBC News is reporting the Digby fishermen answered questions from the prosecutor and judges for 15 minutes.

The CBC report says Halliday told the court he was unaware of the 1,000 kg of cocaine worth $600 million hidden aboard the Destiny Empress.

Halliday also told the court he didn’t make any phone calls to Spain but only to Nova Scotia to talk to his wife Sheree.

Sheree and their two boys, Cody and Daren are in Spain for the trial and were scheduled to visit with Philip over the weekend.

CBC says Philip waved to his family during the trial.

Philip is one of ten accused at this trial; six others were onboard the Destiny Empress with him and police arrested the other three in Spain.

CBC says the chief of Spanish police was the first to testify. He told the court they focussed on the Destiny Empress after finding a receipt during a drug raid in the U.K. for repairs to the ship.
