Raymond Phil, 22, of 160 South Vryheid’s Lust, East Coast Demerara was placed on $75,000 bail yesterday by Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, when he appeared to answer a charge that he stole $500,000, from Terrence Phil, last week Tuesday.
The defendant, who is represented by attorney at law, Trenton Lake, pleaded not guilty.
The lawyer in his bail application said that the defendant would make constant visits to the home of the virtual complainant to do construction works. However, his client has no knowledge of the missing amount of money, he said.
Police Prosecutor Stephen Telford did not object to bail. Telford said that on the day in question, Raymond Phil was at Terrence Phil’s home when he asked him for a drink of water.
Terrence Phil discovered that the money was missing an hour later when the defendant left his home.
The Magistrate granted bail in the sum of $75,000 and the defendant is scheduled to make his next court appearance on October 4.
Also appearing before that Magistrate was Alicia Austin who faced two counts of incurring unnecessary debts.
It is alleged that on September 15, 2010, the defendant incurred debts of $10,000 and $15,000 under false pretence to Jesse knights and Rommel Griffith respectively.
Austin pleaded guilty to one of the charges and made an application for bail. The defendant told the court that she couldn’t recall any incident occurring with Rommel Griffith.
She said that she was using a taxi driven by Jesse Knights to transport goods, when ranks of the Guyana Police Force stopped the vehicle to make a routine check and seized all of her products.
Austin further noted that she was unable to make payments for the services given by the taxi driver, because she was unable to meet her destination to deliver the goods, hence she had no money.
The Magistrate sentenced the defendant to two weeks’ imprisonment and ordered her to pay a fine of $10,000.
