Wilke Carreno and Margelys Ozuna admitted before Magistrate Ann McLennan that between June 18 and 30 in Georgetown they failed to comply with the conditions of their permit.
Carreno and Ozuna were granted permission to stay in Guyana from April 6 to June 28, 2015 but they over stayed their time. Carreno explained through an interpreter that they were employed at Rosignol Butchery.
The duo was represented by Attorney –at – Law, Nigel Hughes, who stated that they had overstated by a month and were helping some friends with their business.
According to the lawyer, his clients arrived in Guyana from Suriname and had no intentions of staying.
