Home News Chinese nationals allegedly wanted for murder charged with illegal entry
Three Chinese nationals who are allegedly wanted for murder in their homeland were on Friday charged for illegally entering Guyana when they appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
The men, Zhou Ou, Yix Zheny, and Dagvi Wong were charged jointly for the offence which stated that between December 1 and 31, 2018, at Lethem, they entered Guyana illegally by crossing a land frontier and failed to present themselves to an immigration officer.
With the aid of an interpreter, the men were sentenced to two months in prison, after which they will be deported.
The prosecution contended that the men were nabbed by Police in Lethem on February 5, 2019, and were asked to present their passports.
When the officer checked the documents, he discovered that the nationals entered Guyana illegally via a bus from Brazil.
Further, when Interpol was contacted, it was revealed that the three men are wanted for murder in China and Brazil.
