Stabroek News

A Guyana Defence Force corporal appeared before Magistrate Hazel Octive- Hamilton yesterday at the Georgetown Court charged with robbery under arms while in the same matter another man was accused of discharging a loaded firearm at him.

However both were granted bail after their attorneys informed the court that they did not wish to give evidence against each other.

GDF corporal Elroy Newton was charged with robbery under arms.  He was not required to plead to the charge which alleges that on June 4 at Georgetown being armed with a gun, he robbed Safraz Khan of $2M, being the property of Abdul Khan.

Imran Khan was not required to plead to the charge which states that on June 4 at Georgetown with intent to maim, disfigure or cause bodily harm to  Newton he unlawfully and maliciously discharged a loaded firearm. He was represented by attorney Adrian Thompson in association with Pamela DeSantos.

In her bail application, De Santos said that Khan was attacked and robbed by three persons who were later apprehended by the police.

Two of them were released and one was charged.  The robbery involved the theft of $2M from Khan’s brother
