An Ansa McAl salesman was Monday arraigned on four charges of embezzling a total of GYD$22 million.

Thirty-two year old Apollos Manoharlall of 299 Fourth Street Alexander pleaded not guilty after the charges were read to him by Chief Magistrate, Ann Mc Lennan.

He was a salesman in the construction department of Ansa Mc Al.

Manoharlall was granted GYD$400,000 bail on each charge- a total of GYD$1.6 million- and ordered to return to court on July 17, 2017.

He is represented by Attorney-at-Law, Sase Gunraj who told the court that his client was not a flight risk and he was willing to lodge his passport.
