GECOM Chairman issues warning over ‘fake letter’ in ‘politically charged environment’
See below a statement issued by the Guyana Elections Commission:
Circulation of Fake Letter on Social Media
1 June 2020, GEORGETOWN – Chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission, Justice Claudette Singh has noted with much concern the contents of a letter purportedly signed by her and sent to the Commissioner of Police; under the caption “Withdrawal of Fake Letter Dated May 22, 2020.”
The document which is being circulated on social media is bogus and tantamount to forgery since the use of the Chairperson’s letterhead, signature and office stamp may have been copied from another letter and used by the author.
The fake letter appears to be designed to create misinformation, mischief and cause confusion in an already politically charged environment. The Chairperson is therefore urging persons to be tolerant in the tensed atmosphere and desist from such unlawful and mischievous actions.
