A senior police official said that Benvolio Francois Caitanya Valenski, 27, recently appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, where he was granted bail on the two charges. One condition of his bail is that he must report daily at CID Headquarters, Eve Leary.
It is alleged that Valenski had visited the Guyana Revenue Authority’s (GRA) offices last week Thursday to obtain a driver’s licence. He had produced a Canadian licence, and data on GRA’s computers indicated that he was wanted in Canada.
Valenski was subsequently handed over to the police.
Valenski is among six Guyanese on INTERPOL’S wanted list. He is wanted by Canadian authorities for attempted murder; unauthorised possession of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a weapon, use of a firearm during commission of an indictable offence, discharging a firearm with intent to wound and endanger a life, conspiracy to commit murder, and occupying a motor vehicle with a firearm.
Last September, Valenski and a Herstelling, East Bank Demerara resident, Ganesh Singh, appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court on fraud-related charges. The charges included forging identification documents and presenting forged documents.
Valenski was also identified as ‘Roy Anthony Sewnarine.’ His address was given as Better Hope, East Coast Demerara.
It was alleged that between February 1, 2019 and September 2, 2019, at Georgetown, with intent to defraud, Singh conspired with Valenski, to forge one Republic of Guyana driver’s licence in favour of Roy Anthony Sewnarine, purporting to show that same was issued by the Guyana Revenue Authority.
It was also alleged that between February 1, 2019 and September 2, 2019, at Georgetown, with intent to defraud, Singh conspired with Valenski to forge one Guyana National Identification Card in favour of Roy Anthony Sewnarine, purporting to show that it was issued by the Guyana Elections Commission.
Also, it was alleged that on September 2, 2019, at Central Immigration and Passport Office, Camp Street, Georgetown, with intent to defraud, Valenski uttered to a police constable, who is an Immigration Officer, one forged Guyana National Identification card #101263701 in favour of himself, and purporting to show that it was issued by the Guyana Elections Commission, knowing same to be forged.
Finally, it was alleged that on September 2, 2019, at Central Immigration and Passport Office, Georgetown, for the purpose of procuring a new passport, Valenski signed a written declaration, that he was Roy Anthony, knowing it to be false.
