Ed Ahmad sentencing deferred

Guyana-born US businessman Edul Ahmad who pleaded guilty in 2012 to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and wire fraud will not be sentenced on January 15, 2016 as originally announced.

According to court documents filed, due to an oversight, US Probation Officer John Lanigan was not notified to prepare the offence conduct section for the presentence report (PSR) until October 9, 2015. While the presentence interview has now been done more information is required to complete the PSR and the relevant US court officer will not be available until November 30. The Probation Department therefore requested an adjournment of the sentencing date for four weeks and this request was granted by the judge. A new date is to be set.
