A former Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) Senior Clerk, who is now a taxi driver, was today charged for allegedly paying a man to forge a motor vehicle license for himself.

Thirty-two-year- old Wayne Sam of 347 Timehri, East Bank Demerara, appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly in the Georgetown Magistrate’s Courts.

Sam pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on May 29, 2018, at Camp Street, Georgetown, he attempted to incite Christopher Ramadan to commit a felony, that is to say, to forge one GRA motor vehicle license for himself, by paying him $2000.

Sam was represented by Attorney-at-law Ashely Henry who asked that her client be released on reasonable bail citing that he is the sole breadwinner for his family.

According to information, after Sam was fired from GRA, he reached out to Ramadan to get him a motor vehicle license.

However, Ramadan reported the matter to his superiors and, following investigation, he was arrested for the offence and charged.

The Magistrate after listening to both sides released Sam on $25,000 bail.

The father of two was instructed to make his next court appearance on September 13.
