Dhanraj Rambarran and Khamwattie Rambarran at the Georgetown Magistrate's Court in February

An Essequibo husband and wife, who were accused of using their bar as a brothel, have been charged with trafficking Venezuelan women for sexual exploitation.

Dhanraj Rambarran, 58, and his 53-year-old wife Khamwattie Rambarran appeared at the Anna Regina Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday to answer to the charge that they trafficked two Venezuelan women.

The Rambarrans made their appearance before Magistrate Esther Sam and pleaded not guilty.

Police claimed that between January 1, 2019, and February 16, 2019, at La Cabana Bar at Henrietta Village, Essequibo, the couple transported and harboured the two women for sexual exploitation.

The couple was charged in February 2019 for using the La Cabana Bar as a brothel and was released on $10,000 bail each by the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.

However, on Tuesday, based on advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions, the brothel charge was withdrawn and the couple was charged for trafficking in persons.

The couple was jointly charged and were represented by Attorney-at-law Bernard DaSilva.

The attorney, in an application for bail, told the court that his clients are not a flight risk.

Magistrate Sam released the couple each on $200,000 bail and adjourned the matter until May 15, 2019.

News Room understands that the couple was arrested by police during a raid at the La Cabana Bar.

Two females, who are suspected sex workers, were also taken into custody during the raid.

Shameful and Disgraceful.. taking advantage of females to profit on. I wonder if they have daughters .. 

the authorities should close their  bar and cancel the licenses. 

Brothel owners do have daughters.

Aunty Aiida who started Night in London in 1968 at Springlands, Corriverton  has two daughters. Today her daughter, Rita owns The Ritz Hotel and Bar  and the business keep going.

Rita is very famous and many Magistrates, prominent businessmen and   professionals from all over Guyana  will stop by Rita for a drink.

I heard that Rita runs more than a Bar at her residence. She had a very small bar when I resided in Guyana many moons ago. Looks like she turned it into a Brothel and Bar.
