Fifty-year-old Harry Rajkumar of Lot 1 Timehri Dock, East Bank Demerara, appeared before Magistrate Sueanna Lovell at the Providence Magistrate’s Court to answer to the charges of storing illegal petroleum and not having obtained the fuel from a licensed wholesaler or retailer.
It is alleged that on May 4, Rajkumar had in his possession a quantity of petroleum which he stored in a 45-gallon metal drum, and he did not obtain the petroleum from any licenced wholesaler or retailer.
Rajkumar pleaded not guilty to both charges.
Defence Attorney, Paul Fung-A-Fat, told the court that his client, Rajkumar, is a very poor man who tries to make a living by operating a boat to take persons to Arrowpoint and other locations.
Fung-A-Fat, in his application for “reasonable bail”, explained to Magistrate Lovell that the defendant suffers from diabetes and is not a flight risk, therefore he would be grateful for bail to be of a small sum.
Prosecutor Gino Persaud, on behalf of the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA), did not object to bail and even supported the Defense Attorney’s plea for bail to be granted in a small sum.
Magistrate Lovell granted bail in the sum of $15,000 per charge and Rajkumar is scheduled to make his next court appearance on January 10, 2011.
