[www.inewsguyana.com] – Jasodra Bahadur of Lot 18 Block CC Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara made another appearance in Court to answer a series of forgery and embezzlement charges.
The 37-year- old woman was not required to plea to twelve charges which stated that she forged several bills and embezzled more than $500,000 from New Horizon Inc and Roti Plus.
Bahadur’s attorney Latchmie Rahamat told the court that her client has pending matters of similar nature in court and bail should be granted since, Bahadur, to the best of her knowledge has attended all her court dates.
Police Corporal Dinero Jones, prosecuting, successfully opposed bail after citing that Bahadur allegedly committed these offences while on bail.
Jones said because of the gravity and the penalty attached to these offences, bail should be denied.
Further, he told the court that forty charges of similar nature are likely to be laid against the defendant in the near future.
The objection was upheld and the matter was adjourned to April 17, before Chief Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.
