Kaieteur News Publisher, Glenn Lall and his wife, Bhena are expected to appear in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court today to answer to tax evasion charges which were instigated by Commissioner General of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), Khurshid Sattaur.
The summons to appear before the court was severed on Wednesday last, and will also see two friends of the Lalls, Narootandeo and Gharbassi Brijnanans facing related charges.
The charges are based on an alleged investigation by the GRA into duty free concessions under the re-migrant scheme.
According to the summonses, the Lalls of Lindley Avenue, Nandy Park, East Bank Demerara are jointly accused of two counts of having ‘knowingly dealt with goods, with intent to defraud the revenue of duties’.
The Lalls have also been jointly accused along with Narootandeo Brijnanan and his wife Gharbassi with two counts of being ‘knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of import duties of Customs’.
The Brijnanans address was listed as No. 61 Village, Corentyne, Berbice. All the charges relate to the importation of two Lexus LX 570 vehicles by the Brijnanans.
The vehicles have been lying in the GRA Customs bond after being seized several weeks ago.
