A Charity, Essequibo resident, who appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on Friday, was granted bail for $300,000 after pleading not guilty to two counts of obtaining money by false pretence.
It is alleged that the defendant Sudesh Pyaralall of 743 Charity Extension Scheme, Essequibo, on two occasions, falsely obtained $750,000 and $1.5 million, pretending that he was in the position to sell two motorcars.
The court heard that on November 15, 2021, at Wolford Avenue and Albert Street, Georgetown, he obtained $750,000 from Sean Bollers by falsely pretending that he was in a position to sell him motor vehicle PW W9551 when he was not in a place to do so.
The second charge stated that between October 11, 2021, and January 11, 2022, at King Street Georgetown, he obtained $1.5 million from Ramdeo Mohamed by falsely pretending that he was in a position to sell him motor vehicle PZZ 6376 when he was not in a place to do so.
The defendant was granted $150,000 bail for each offence and is expected to report to the Brickdam Police Station every Monday at 9:00 am. He will make another court appearance on May 13, 2022.
