Yuri, wife falsified positive ‘COVID’ results – Police
Cuban National Yuri Garcia and his Guyanese wife Ateeka Ishmael have been accused by the Guyana Police Force of falsifying their COVID-19 test results to show that they had tested positive for the virus as they absented themselves from court.
The Guyana Police Force had conducted investigations into the authenticity of the medical documents.
The documents had been tendered on their behalf by Attorney Dexter Todd at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court after they had failed to appear in court to answer 60 new charges of conspiracy to defraud.
“The investigation has confirmed that the medical documents tendered were falsified,” the police said in a statement on Thursday.
Further investigations are being conducted into this matter.
On Tuesday, the Guyana Police Force filed sixty (60) new charges against Cuban National Yuri Garcia and his Guyanese wife Ateeka Ishmael for the offence of conspiracy to defraud, allegedly committed on victims of a ponzi scheme.
Dominguez had said previously, through his attorney, that he intends to refund some $100 million to over 3,000 investors, whose investments he was ‘managing’ in a forex trading account.
According to the Guyana Police Force, Dominguez and his wife solicited millions of dollars from hundreds of unsuspecting Guyanese, who were enticed by extraordinary returns of approximately 40 per cent. Investors were also encouraged to enlist additional investors on a 10 per cent commission basis.
The company was charged for operating without a license from the Guyana Securities Council and running a pyramid scheme and a Ponzi scheme; the couple is currently before the courts with over 100 charges of fraud.
