Home News GRA, Public Security staff slapped with forgery charge
One staff member of the Guyana Revenue Authority and two Public Security Ministry staff members were on Friday each slapped with a charge of forgery and taken before Magistrate Judy Latchman.
The four: Azad Mohammed, Chatram Persaud, Danesh Dyal and Richard Mohan, all made their appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts after they were allegedly caught with forged vehicle tint permits.
The charges allege that they all conspired to commit a felony; that is to say, they forge a motor vehicle tint licence which they knew was not issued by the Public Security Ministry. However, they denied the charge when it was read to them.
The Prosecution is contending that the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) worker and the two Public Security Ministry staffers were implicated when the forged document was presented to the Police.
It has been reported that Mohammed was stopped by ranks while she was driving a heavily tinted vehicle. After enquires by the lawmen, she presented them with the tint licence, which was observed to be fake.
As such, she was arrested, and reportedly told officers that she had paid ,000 for the permit which was given to her by the Ministry and GRA workers. All four were granted bail at the sum of 0,000, and are expected to make their next court appearance later in October.
Investigations are still ongoing.
