Venezuelan woman fined, deported for entering Guyana illegally
A 27-year-old Venezuelan national, who was recently nabbed at the Itaballi Police Checkpoint was on Wednesday fined and deported for entering Guyana illegally.
Roxanne Torres Aregas appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court, where she begged the court to return to her homeland after confessing to the charge.
It is alleged that Aregas on June 18, 2017 at Eteringbang, Region 7, entered Guyana by sea and disembarked without presenting herself to an immigration officer.
On September 17, 2017, the accused was a passenger in a car, which was stopped by police at the Itaballi Police Checkpoint. The foreign national was asked to produce her document but failed to do so.
