Convicted drug baron, Barry Dataram, and his wife, Anjanie Boodnarine, are back home and they had in their possession bogus Guyanese passports.

They are in the names if David Persaud and Christine Persaud.

The passport in the name of Persaud was issued on January 15, 2016 and the other in the name of David Persaud was issued on April 15, 2013.

Dataram and Boodnarine were arrested at house at Latour in southern Paramaribo, the capital of that former Dutch colony.

Surinamese police handed over Dataram and Boodnarine to Guyanese law enforcement authorities Saturday morning.

They crossed on the Guyana-Suriname ferry and arrived at Moleson Creek at about 9:30 AM.

Dataram was convicted on September 27, 2016 and jailed for five years, while Boodnarine and two men were set free because, according to Magistrate Judy Latchman, there was no evidence to tie them to the cocaine that was found at his house at Diamond.

The United States has long unsealed an indictment and had requested his extradition unsuccessfully several years ago.

      If the chap starts to squeal, he will be a door nail!

  • Kassee

    Why drugs still leaving the country undetected and found in other countries.?

    • Lucy

      Because he is too racist and has ONE eye like the minister of Security…Maybe he should check SITA bar if the poor chap is there sipping a cold BANKS instead of do his function that he is assigned to do….Guyana has well over 2000+ cases of break and enter since he took over from ROHEE….all only in 17 months.

      Well, you asked about the government sending him to America if asked, as far as drugs still leaving, it is going to take some time for the APNU government to get rid of the lawless, corrupt crap that flourished under the NARCO-PPP government.

    That is like saying all we black people are stupid like you…You hanging out with the wrong Indos…

    • Lucy

      He is too racist to see (just like our minister of security – looking east and seeing west)…When stuff like this occurs, more than likely Rumjatoo is at sita bar sipping a cold BANKS instead of doing his function…More than 2000+ cases of break and enter in ONLY 17 months…Maybe you should help this fellow to learn stats….
