Donetta Rajkumar, 33, was charged for stealing $195,000 from Junior Natural Resources Minister Simona Broomes.
Rajkumar, of La Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara (WBD), appeared before Magistrate Faith McGusty and denied that between March 6 and March 7, 2019 at Lodge, Georgetown, she stole $195,000 from Minister Broomes. Rajkumar was at the time employed as a housekeeper. The woman, who was represented by Attorney-at-Law Everton Lammy-Singh, is contending that she did not remove the cash.
Police Prosecutor Seon Blackman objected to bail. The Prosecutor informed the court that the housekeeper was the lone person in the house after the Minister left and had access to the cash. The housekeeper was released on $75,000 bail. She is expected to return to court on April 3, 2019.
