The shopkeeper who was said to be holding a Trinidad National and a Guyanese against their will in region 7 has given her take on things.
The shop owner who is accused of holding a Trinidadian and a Guyanese woman against their will is giving her side of the story. The women were rescued from the businesswoman’s 14 mile Issano cabin in region 7.
The woman said she was never holding the girls against their will for money owed to her. She believes that attempts are being made by the women to put her behind bars.
The Trinidadian mother of two said she came to Guyana on a promise that she would work for gold and money at a club in the interior. She said she was in need of money so she took up the offer.
The woman said she had to pay a rent of $3000 a day for accommodation which was not disclosed to her previously. The shop owner is demanding her money.
The GWMO and officials from other agencies rescued the woman and another Guyanese last Friday. This newscast understands that the businesswoman was expected to report to the police station.
