Indian national to be sentenced for overstaying

Indian national, Groopanan Kumar, who admitted to overstaying his time in Guyana was yesterday remanded to prison until today when sentence will be handed down.

Magistrate Hazel Octave-Hamilton deferred sentencing to today so the court could  be fortified with specifics regarding the defendant’s passport.

The charge against the defendant is that between September 5, 2010 and August 15, 2011 at Georgetown, he failed to comply with the conditions of the permit he had been granted to stay in Guyana from September 4, 2009 to September 4, 2010, overstaying  the said period.

Kumar  pleaded guilty to the charge of overstaying.

The prosecution indicated to the court that the facts were as charged but no further details of what transpired on the day in question were presented to the court.
