Three members of the Guyana Police Force and a Civilian are to face charges in the Courts for their part in a massive scam involving the driver’s license theoretical examination.
The scam was discovered back in April when after a driver’s license theoretical examination, the examiners noticed that more exam papers were handed up than there were persons in the room who took the exam.
It was suspected that there was collusion between the Police and others to have persons sit the exams for them for a fee. It was also suspected that some officers might have slipped in additional answer sheets after the exam.
The Guyana Police Force announced on Friday that following legal advice, it will be moving to charge the three police officers and the civilian.
“A Police Sergeant to be charged with twelve counts of having conspired with others to commit a misdemeanor; a female Corporal will be charged with eighteen counts of the said offence; a Corporal to be charged also with twenty counts of the said offence”, a release from the Police stated.
The charges are laid under Section 33 of the Criminal Law (Offences) Act Chapter 8:01.
The Civilian will be charged with two counts of obtaining money by false pretence.
