A Trinidadian National,who has found himself facing fraud charges in the local courts, has now been ordered deported after being found guilty of fraud committed against the Brandsville hotel.
The man, 28-year-old, Anthony Nestor, was also fined $100,000 and ordered to pay the hotel $260,000 or face 36 months in jail, after he was found guilty of fraud.
During his trial, Nestor told the Court that he was really Guyanese although all the evidence pointed to him being a Trinidadian national. Local officials contacted their counterparts in Trinidad and Tobago during the trial and it was confirmed that he was indeed a Trinidadian national.
He was arrested and charged back in December after the hotel filed a police complaint against him. He had been staying at the hotel but when it was time to settle his $260,000 bill, he provided false documents and a bogus credit card.
Nestor is also facing other fraud charges in the court. At least one other hotel has filed a complaint against him over a similar fraud.
After the sentence was handed down and the deportation ordered made, Nestor was handed back over to Police.
He had been on the radar of local police and immigration officials for a number of years, but had vanished. It was only recently that he emerged from hiding.
Back in 2010/2011, the youngster appeared in Guyana and presented himself to local politicians as a Member of the the Trinidadian Parliament. He attempted to secure a number of meetings back then with government and opposition officials and even set up an office for a Guyana Youth Parliament on Brickdam. He was thrown out of that office when the owners realised that he was not who he claimed to be.
The man had also presented himself as a CARICOM official and a Commonwealth official and even started a youth group in Georgetown that attempted to defraud a number of businesses.
