A Cuban National, who allegedly threatened to bomb the Embassy of the United States in Georgetown, appeared before Magistrate Leron Daly Friday, charged with overstaying in Guyana.

Hunyary Reygagd admitted that between December 14, 2018, and January 17, 2019, at Georgetown, he failed to comply with conditions granted to stay in Guyana which was from November 14, 2018, to December 13, 2018, when he arrived at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).

But on January 17, 2019, he and his mother went to the US Embassy where a representative found that he overstayed his time in Guyana after checking his passport.

The court heard that the accused reportedly told the representative: “If I have to cross the border of the United States, that’s what I have to do or place bombs or whatever so that they can understand us.”

The Magistrate fined him $30,000 or six months imprisonment for staying, however, he was taken into Police Custody as investigations continue into the threats he made to the Embassy.
