A computer technician was on Thursday released on $50,000 bail when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for forging an appointment letter from the United States (US) Embassy.
Dhanraj Raghubeer, 27, of Lot 26 Owen Street, Kitty denied that on October 25, at Georgetown, with the intent to defraud he forged a US Embassy appointment letter.
Additionally, he denied a second charge which stated that on the same day he uttered the said forged letter to Vanessa Gomes proposing to show that the same was issued by the US Embassy.
Police Prosecutor Deniro Jones told the court that Gomes paid the accused a sum of money for the visa application to be made and he issued her with a letter of appointment for an interview at the Embassy. When she arrived on the alleged appointment date, she was informed that her name was not in the system and there was never an application made out on her behalf.
As such she reported the matter to the Police and the accused was arrested.
The case is set to continue on January 20, 2016.
