The allegations state that on the day of the incident, the accused was driving motor cycle CG 8213 without a helmet after which he was stopped and searched by ranks from the Guyana Police Force when the gun and ammunition were discovered.

When asked by the Magistrate who his employer is, the man related that he is a driver attached to the Office of the President.  [Royan Abrams]
