The U.S. Embassy announces the return of wanted person Ganeshwar Sheocharran to Guyana Police Force custody. The subject had attempted to flee Guyana’s law enforcement on a plane bound for JFK Airport on Monday, September 14. Through cooperation among the regional security offices of both Guyana and Trinidad Tobago, the Guyana Police Force Criminal Investigation Department, U.S. Custom and Border Protection, the U.S. Marshal Service and Caribbean Airlines, Mr. Sheocharran was denied entry upon arrival in New York and sent back to Guyana, where he remains in police custody.
Ambassador Lynch praised the operation, saying “it is this kind of collaboration that will make our region safe for all Guyanese. Congratulations to all who were involved, as the rule of law is our collective responsibility.”
