Office of the President driver arrested with unlicensed gun, ammo

Office of the President driver arrested with unlicensed gun, ammo
A driver of the Office of the President was Thursday arraigned for illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition and he was remanded to prison.

Kennard Jabur of Norton Street allegedly had in his possession one  9 MM pistol and four live bullets without being the holder of a license.

The prosecution told the court that Jabur was stopped and searched by a police mobile patrol on September 3 at John Street and Brickdam. At the time, he was riding a motorcycle without a helmet.

Prosecutor, Bharrat Magru objected to bail, saying that the offence was prevalent and serious. He said no special reasons were presented to justify the bail application.

Chief Magistrate, Priya Sewnarine-Beharry refused Jabur bail. The matter was transferred to  Court Three where Magistrate Judy Latchman told him to return to court on September 18.

Quoting A MOORE:
This guy works at the OP so he knows what the official policy of the government is ;The police is not out there to protect you from criminals so you have to do what you must to protect yourself. That's why they allow so many guns on our streets. Very similar to what they did with the mass transportation system where everyone need their own car or bike.

@ who bankrupted Guyana....build Harbor Bridge but couldn't maintain it and stoping it from floating away.
