In continuing saga…
Reeaz Khan charges girl’s mother with perjury
July 3, 2004
THE continuing saga surrounding city businessman Reeaz Khan and his controversial sexual relationship with a 13-year-old took a new turn yesterday when he filed a perjury charge against the girl’s mother.
Khan, himself a defendant in a related abduction case, swore to information before Chief Magistrate Juliet Holder-Allen who has issued a summons to Bibi Shameeza Hamid.
Particulars of the offence charged against Hamid said she, being a deponent in a notice of motion, on June 7 at Georgetown, knowingly and falsely stated in a sworn affidavit that a marshal served an order by High Court Judge B.S. Roy on Khan at his Lot 37 Camp Street business place, Reeaz Trading Enterprise.
The case will be called again on July 8.
Khan, 36, of Lot 51 Eccles, East Bank Demerara, is still to face trial in front of Senior Magistrate Melissa Robertson-Ogle, at Wales Court, West Bank Demerara, for allegedly unlawfully taking the unmarried teen under the age of 16 out of the possession and without the consent of her mother, against her will on May 21.
He previously pleaded not guilty to the charge last June 10 and is on $100,000 cash bail.
