The women are 22-year-old Jenny Henry, 56-year-old Neeta Shamlall, 35-year-old Margo Gordon, 32-year-old Cleva France and 44-year-old Nesha Rambaran.

The recommendations were reviewed by Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Basil Williams, and granted in accordance with Article 121 of the Constitution of Guyana, more particularly Articles 188, 189 and 190.  The President granted free and full pardon to the five women, who were considered fit and proper to receive the Presidential Pardon.

These prisoners have served a portion of their respective sentences for offences ranging from larceny, fraud and assault causing bodily harm, a release from the Ministry of Public Security said.
