Clerk accused of stealing $13M by forging cheques
A woman was yesterday placed on $2.6 million bail after she was arraigned at court on charges that she stole over $13 million through forgery.
It was alleged at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts that between January 5, 2011 and December 14, 2012, Jasodra Bahadur, 35, of lot 18 Block CC, Mon Repos, East Coast, Demerara, stole the sum of $13,172,321, belonging to Mohammed Khan, by forging 26 cheques.
She was not required to plead to the more than two dozen indictable charges when they were read to her by Magistrate Ann McLennan.
Prosecutor Deniro Jones told the court that Khan sells goods to New Horizon, where Bahadur works as a sales representative.
