Michael Orlando Currica, who was wanted for the offence of murder committed on Ovial Jorris, called “Buns” at Bartica in 2006, was today deported from France and will be charged with the said offence shortly.
Investigations revealed that the wanted man departed Guyana illegally sometime in 2006 through Port Moleson Creek and made his way to Suriname thence to French Guiana. There he stayed and worked illegally for some years.
He eventually departed for France where he was employed as a mason/labourer with a French construction company. While in the company of others, he was apprehended by French police and a search was conducted on his person which resulted in him being found in possession of a stolen cellular phone.
He was arrested, taken into custody and later charged with the offence. Currica appeared in court, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine years imprisonment.
On June 21, 2023 he was released and placed in immigration custody and deported to Guyana where upon arrival, he was immediately taken into custody. He is expected to appear in court shortly to answer to the murder charge.
