Guyana: James Bond arrested on allegation of conspiracy to defraud state

Prominent PNCR member and attorney, James Bond was arrested yesterday  by the police as the probe into the award of state lands at Peters Hall on the East Bank of Demerara (EBD) continues.

Bond is alleged to have been a key financial beneficiary of the deals which allegedly did not comply with the traditional terms of such land leases. Bond has declined to speak to Stabroek News on these matters.

Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum confirmed last evening to Stabroek News that Bond remains in custody for questioning as police continue their investigations. He also informed that the attorney was being questioned in relation to conspiracy to defraud the state.

Bond took to social media yesterday giving updates on his detention and informed that he was at one point asked to submit to a lie detector test, a claim police last night denied.
