Man who challenged Region Four vote count commits suicide
Reaaz Hollader, the man who had obtained an injunction from the Court blocking the announcement of an overall winner of the March 02 elections, allegedly committed suicide Saturday morning at his Prashad Nagar, Georgetown house.
Police Commander Senior Superintendent Phillip Azore confirmed to the News Room that an “alleged suicide” took place in the area at 04:55hrs.
The Senior Superintendent noted investigators are reviewing the incident which was caught on surveillance camera. The News Room understands that Hollader took his life in the presence of his wife and security guard during an argument with his wife.
Hollader was also the driver of former Attorney General Anil Nandlall.
Nandlall, with support from the Opposition People’s Progressive Party, was representing Hollader in the court case which blocked the Guyana Elections Commission declaring the overall winner of the elections once it included the unverified vote count of the votes cast.
In a subsequent statement posted on his Facebook page, Nandlall said, “It is with profound sadness that I confirmed that Reaaz Holladar, my driver for several years, died this morning at or about 4:00 am.
“From all indications, he committed suicide. He was a loyal and dedicated employee. He has left to mourn a wife and two sons. With his family, I mourn his loss.”
