Former Commissioner-General of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), Kurshid Sattaur died on Tuesday after a long battle with cancer.

He was 63 years old.

A relative confirmed that Sattaur passed away in Guyana.

Sattaur was tax chief until 2016, months after the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) lost power.

He was a devout Muslim.

At one time, he had visited the United States (US) for cancer treatment.

Sattaur, a chartered accountant and auditor, had gone into private practice, having left the government service.

His career spanned several decades dating back to the GRA’s precursor Inland Revenue Department.
