Minister Manniram Prashad’s son Navin charge of causing death case
The case against Navin Prashad who is charged with causing the death of a University of Guyana student on Carifesta Avenue was put off until next month.
The case was called again before Magistrate Melissa Robertson-Ogle at Court Seven and the prosecutor indicated that she was not in possession of the file. She stated that she called her office and was told that the file would be sent over.
Prashad’s attorney K. Juman-Yassin asked for a date in April for statements.
It is alleged that on November 26 Prashad drove his motor pickup GJJ 6185 in a manner dangerous to the public, thereby causing the death of Rajendra Jailall. Jailall along with Thakoor Persaud were in another vehicle driven by their friend Talesh Yhuam when a dark coloured Ford 4×4 travelling in the opposite direction ran into them. Their vehicle flipped several times and crashed into a bridge outside the GT&T earth station. Jailall was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries. This was not the first time that the case was called and the court was told that the prosecution was not in possession of the file.
Prashad will return to court on April 19.
This case eventually disappeared, nothing ever became of it.
