Non-national gets passport taken away in Barbados

A Guyanese national was granted $20 000 bail yesterday after appearing on two fraud-related charges.

Twenty-one-year-old Quindon Lelon Bacchus was not required to plead to the charges before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant. 

Bacchus, a labourer of Golden Grove, East Coast Demerara is accused that: 

- on March 14, 2018, with intent to defraud, he obtained from Husayn Daya, three cellphones, three phone cases and three screen protectors; a total value of $2308; by virtue of a forged Royal Bank Barbados Ltd cheque, which was payable to HD Tech +.

 - on the same date with intent to defraud, he uttered a certain forged bill to Daya purporting to be a Royal Bank Barbados Ltd cheque payable to HD Tech + for $2300

The magistrate granted bail but asked Bacchus to surrender his passport, continue residing with his surety and to report to Black Rock Police Station every Monday and Thursday before 12 p.m.

If the accused wishes to travel he will have to seek the court's permission first.

The matter was adjourned until June 25.

He was represented by attorney-at-law Angella Mitchell-Gittens' junior counsel Shanika Carrington.
