Guyana prepares for release and deportation from USA of Roger Khan in July


GEORGETOWN, Guyana, April 18, 2019 (CMC) – The governments of Guyana and the United States are working together to prepared for the release and deportation of convicted Guyanese drug lord, Shaheed Roger Khan. 

Khan, who is scheduled to be released from a US prison in July, has been serving a 10-year jail sentence for narco-trafficking and conspiracy.    

“We are working, very closely, with the Guyanese authorities, on making sure that the arrival is, as smooth as possible, and so the best thing we can do is continue to collaborate and share information and work together,” said US Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, during an interview on local radio.

The convicted drug mogul, before his arrest in Suriname and extradition from Trinidad and Tobago, had admitted to leading a death squad enterprise, in Guyana, that is believed to be responsible for the murders of several persons and the execution of suspected criminals.

He also admitted that he offered security support to the then People’s Progressive Party (PPP)-Civic government.

Khan was slapped with the prison sentence, after he opted to take a plea deal rather than face a trial, however, the terms of that plea deal are not known.

Khan recently filed a petition with a US Court, seeking an early release. The matter is still to be heard.

On his return to Guyana, it is likely that he could face a wide range of criminal charges.
