Vryheid’s Lust man lands in court for making false declaration


… allegedly had more than US$10,000 at CJIA

A contractor was on Tuesday charged for knowingly making a declaration on an immigration form to be untrue when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

Clairmont Reid of Lot 197 South Vryheid’s Lust, East Coast Demerara, pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.

CJIA-It was alleged that on June 6, at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Reid made an untrue declaration on an immigration form which stated that he was not carrying more than US$10,000, when in fact he had TT$139,135 in his possession – the equivalent of US$20,782.22.

The defence Attorney Paul Fung-A-Fat made a successful bail application, despite objections by the Prosecutor Deniro Jones.

Reid was granted bail in the sum of G$100, 000. The case will continue on September 8.
