Guyana: Judge orders release of detained AFI fuel – counsel

Acting Chief Justice Roxane George-Wiltshire SC has ordered the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) and the Guyana Energy Agency (GEA) to release to Atlantic Fuels Inc (AFI) the 635,353 litres of diesel fuel it had seized and detained.

This is according to a press release from AFI’s attorney Siand Dhurjon who said the judge noted that the Revenue Authority and the Energy Agency acted illegally in prohibiting clearance for the importation of the fuel.   

AFI had taken the GRA and GEA to court over the seizure and detention of the fuel it had imported on November 1st, last year, which Dhurjon said is worth over $80,000,000 in resale value.
