Boodram not brought to court
Businesswoman Vicky Boodram will reappear before a Port-of-Spain magistrate on October 12. Boodram, 30, of Siparia, has been in the Women’s Prison, Golden Grove, since last month. She was listed to reappear before Magistrate Marcia Murray in the Port-of-Spain First Court yesterday. However, Boodram was not brought to court, prompting Murray to issue a court note to ensure her appearance on the next adjourned date.
Boodram, the owner of Boodram’s Travel & Tours and Ship Ahoy Cruises, appeared before Murray in May 2011, charged with 19 counts of fraudulently receiving more than $5 million from customers for two cruise packages that failed to materialise. She was granted $6 million bail, while her estranged husband Ravi Arjoonsingh, who is jointly charged on 14 counts of fraud, was granted $3.5 million bail.
Boodram appeared in the San Fernando Magistrates Court last month, accused of purchasing a $629,000 E-Class Mercedes Benz and a $2 million house at Palmiste using forged documents and uttering forged documents to a bank, including job letters, in order to obtain a credit card.
She was later granted $3 million bail for those matters. Also last month, Boodram appeared before a Siparia magistrate charged with three counts of fraud and was granted $250,000 bail. The T&T Guardian learned Boodram has not yet accessed her bail in relation to the Siparia matters and therefore remains in the women’s prison. Although she was not brought to court yesterday, Arjoonsingh, along with Boodram’s father, Ramjass Boodram, who is listed as the company’s corporate secretary, was present when the matter was recalled.
