A disgruntled former employee of Lees Trading Company Limited at Laucala Beach Estate in Suva is a suspect in the alleged murder of Holland Seeto.

It is understood that he was sacked last month for punching Mr Seeto after his leave request was declined.

The suspect had only begun work at the company’s bakery and was not eligible for leave.

The late Mr Seeto was the chief executive officer of the company.

He was found dead inside his office on Thursday morning with stab wounds to his neck.

According to well-placed Police sources, the Police investigation team during their search on Thursday, found a bag believed to belong to the suspect within the company premises.

A bolt cutter and other items were found in the bag which the sources claimed could have helped the suspect in the alleged murder.

It is understood that Police also found footprints of the suspect in the mangrove swamp going the Laucala Beach Estate Bailey Bridge.

Meanwhile, the late Mr Seeto will be buried at the Chinese Cemetery in Suva tomorrow.

His elder brother, Dixon Seeto, said those wishing to pay their last respect could go to the Suva Private Hospital between 9am to 10am.

Following this, the funeral cortege will leave for Mr Holland’s home at Tamavua where they will stop in front of his house to perform traditional ceremonies before they leave for the cemetery at Reservoir Road.

He is expected to be buried at 10.30am.
