Brandon Rahaman was yesterday placed on $1M bail for an accident that resulted in fatality earlier this year. The twenty-two year-old businessman of 56 Robb Street, Georgetown appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman to answer to the charge of causing death by dangerous driving.
It is alleged that on March 17, 2014 Rahaman drove motor pick up (GRR4883) in a manner dangerous to the public thereby causing the death of 21-year-old Wazim Mohamed Hussein.
The facts of the case are that on Monday March 17, last, the defendant drove his vehicle proceeding south along the East Bank Demerara Public Road, when he lost control causing the vehicle to topple over numerous times, resulting in serious injury to several passengers, including Hussein.
All the persons involved were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) for medical examination and treatment after the accident, however, Hussein was pronounced dead on arrival at GPHC.
Rahaman was represented by Attorney-at-law Basil Williams, who requested reasonable bail; stating the deceased was in the same vehicle with the defendant. The Attorney said that his client is on $50,000 station bail and is not a flight risk. The lawyer also told the court that as requested by the police his client had been reporting to the Brickdam Police Station every Monday at 9:00 a.m., except on National Holidays.
Police Prosecutor Joel Ricknauth made no objections to bail, but asked that the defendant lodge his passport. Bail was granted in the sum of $1M and the court was adjourned until October 31 when statements will be filed. The commencement of the trial is set for November 16.
