Man charged for forging lottery ticket

A man appeared before the Serious Offences Court on Wednesday, charged with falsifying a scratch card of the National Lotteries Authority (NLA).

Desborn George is charged with falsifying an instrument (a scratch card) for use by him or another person with intent to deceive the NLA.

The charge, indictably laid against George, is to be answered in the High Court on November 29, 2017.

In the interim, the Chief Magistrate granted George bail of $7,000 and ordered him to surrender his travel documents.
