The young man was treated at a hotel on George Street in the city before being taken to St Vincent’s Hospital, but died in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police arrested Trong Ha Nguyen at Sydney Airport on Monday afternoon, and during a search of the 23-year-old allegedly seized $13,535 in cash.

Nguyen, from Victoria, was taken to Mascot police station where he was charged with supplying a self-administered prohibited drug causing death and dealing with property proceeds of crime less than $100,000.

He was refused bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday, where he was formally refused bail to reappear at the same court on November 30.


Investigations are continuing.

The man’s death was one of two over the long weekend – which marked the start of the summer festival season – raising questions about the NSW government’s approach to pill testing.

A 26-year-old man also died of a suspected overdose after attending the Knockout Outdoor festival.
