More worries for cash jet pilot
Guyanese pilot Khamraj Lall is now facing serious charges in three jurisdictions within the United States. His arrest in New Jersey on July 22 was under seal since then after the US government brought structuring charges against him. The case was only unsealed yesterday.
This means the cash jet pilot is in a lot more trouble now. Structuring is making financial transactions in an effort to avoid detection.He had to appear in a New Jersey court to answer those charges. When he was arrested on July 22nd on the structuring charges he was ordered detained by the judge in New Jersey pending his indictment for narcotics charges in the western district of New York.
There he is accused of narcotics trafficking. The Feds accuse him of bringing narcotics via his planes to a narcotics gang in the Buffalo Rochester area of New York State. Lall was initially arrested in Puerto Rico last year but was released on bail. In Puerto Rico he was slapped with money laundering and smuggling of currency charges after his plane heading to Guyana was found with over 625 thousand US dollars stashed in garbage bags. Lall has property and businesses in Guyana including a private hangar at the CJIA afforded him by the previous administration. He was not subjected to rigorous Customs checks and also ferried members of the previous administration in his planes.
