Driver gets $200,000 bail on fraud charge – Guyana Times

Hakeem Khan has been granted $200,000 bail after being first denied bail and remanded to prison when he appeared before a city Magistrate in August on charges of fraud.
It is alleged that on November 22, 2022, at Sheriff Street, Georgetown, being solely entrusted by Suneeta Singh, a cashier employed by Mima Decor, with $2,130,000 in order to make payments to Ramps Logistics on behalf of Mima Decor, Khan converted the sum to his own use and benefit.
He has pleaded not guilty.

At first, the Police prosecutor had opposed Khan’s release on bail. However, Adrian Thompson, Khan’s attorney, renewed his client’s bail request during a recent hearing.
The attorney claimed that his client is in negotiations with the business to resolve the matter.
Senior Magistrate Leron Daly approved a $200,000 bail amount.
Khan is required to report to the Brickdam Police Station under the terms of his bail.
The Police prosecutor told the court that Khan worked as a driver for Mima Decor and that one of his responsibilities was to process payments on the company’s behalf.

On the day in question, the company’s cashier allegedly gave Khan the money to make payments to Ramps Logistics for the services that the company had provided. It is alleged that Khan never returned to work, and the payments were never made. He was driving a corporate bus, which was later found abandoned.
Contact attempts were unsuccessful until August 16, 2023, when the accused was spotted on a construction site. After contacting the Police, Khan was taken into custody.
Khan’s next court date is November 17. (G1)
