August 24 London: Guyana Defence Force Cadet Officer Dorian Massay
could face a prison term when he appears for sentencing at Reading Crown Court on September 16th. Massay pleaded guilty to
sixteen charges of dishonesty - six involving forgery, three of theft and seven of handling stolen goods when he appeared
for trial in the same court on August 16th.
Massay was sent by the GDF to train at Britain's elite Royal Military Academy
Sandhurst (near Reading) at which Prince Harry is also currently a cadet. Last July there was some confusion as to his fate.
He allegedly 'disappeared', leading to the GDF asking London's Metropolitan Police to search their records of the dead
and injured in the '7/7' terrorist bombing in the capital. Massay was not amongst them but found to be up on these serious
charges instead. Cadet Massay was also alleged to have impersonated diplomats from the Guyana High Commission in London in
his written and other communications. The Guyana Ministry of Foreign Affairs was forced to issue a statement distancing itself
from Massay and his actions.
