Businessman on bail for not declaring excess cash


Court[] – A Tyre shop dealer was on Thursday, April 16 granted $100,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry for failing to declare excess cash while departing Guyana. 

Rajesh Seegobin of Lot 19 Public Road Prospect, East Bank Demerara, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

It is alleged that on March 07 at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Timehri, he failed to declare £ 3,300 which was in his possession, to an immigration officer.

Seegobin’s lawyer requested that his client be placed on reasonable bail and that the money be returned to his client, which is in the custody of the Specially Organized Crime Unit (SOCU).

Police Prosecutor, Bharrat Mangru did not object to bail and the matter was adjourned to April 23.




  1. Is that sum only about US$4,000.00? I always thought it was under 10,000.00 US to report? Not that I carry that much cash anyway.
