The Guyana Police Force today announced that it has released the Venezuelan registered aircraft and its crew after documents were provided for the plane and the local civil aviation authority confirmed the authenticity of the documents.
The plane was detained after it arrived in Guyana earlier this month with two Venezuelan pilots and two Venezuelan passengers.
At the time, investigators raised the red flag after a number of documents belonging to the plane appeared suspicious.
In a statement today, the Police Force said it received support from several agencies and the Venezuelan embassy during its probe.
The Data Plate which was not found during earlier searches was eventually located by the Investigative/Inspecting Team on the same aircraft, along with the Log Book which indicated that the aircraft had been in use since 2014.
“All outstanding documents which were required submitted to the GCAA and thereafter the Investigators, were submitted and scrutinized to the satisfaction of there being authentic, as substantiated and confirmed by the GCAA, the Central Authority” the release said.
With the confirmations, the Police said there was no reason to further detain the aircraft.
