A worker from the Regional Democratic Council (RDC), Region Six was placed on $75,000 bail yesterday after he was charged with exposing his genitals.
Narine Chattergoon, 49, of Bath Settlement, West Cost Berbice appeared before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs Marcus in the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court where he pleaded not guilty.
It is alleged that on March 13, at the Regional Democratic Council office Vryman’s Erven, New Amsterdam Chattergoon exposed his genitals to a woman.
It was alleged that on the day in question, the woman was at her home when she saw the accused on his motorcycle. She asked him if he could help her get a job as a neighbourhood police and he told her to meet him at his office. The woman reportedly told him that she did not have money to get to the office and he allegedly gave her $300.
The woman went to the RDC office and asked for “Anil” the name given to her. The security guard indicated that she did not know anyone by that name and asked her to wait.
Not long after, the woman saw the accused entering the compound and she followed him to his office. She said he acted as if he were making phone calls, the left the office. On his return, she alleged, he attempted to kiss her and she pushed him away. He then returned to his seat, exposed his genitals and asked her to perform oral sex, the woman alleged. She said she refused and left the office in shock.
When Chattergoon was contacted by police he denied the allegation. He is to make his second court appearance on July 18.
