BREAKING: Clairmont Mingo arrested


Police Tuesday afternoon arrested the Returning Officer of Region Four Clairmont Mingo.

Mingo, who emerged as a controversial figure following the heavily disputed March 2 general and regional elections, was arrested at his house in Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara.

Usually reliable sources told the News Room that he was taken to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) in Georgetown for questioning.

Court Marshalls have been looking for Mingo to serve him criminal charges which were filed by a private citizen but were unable to locate him for several weeks.

The charge relates to the fraudulent elections declaration of March 5 which has Mingo’s signature; a national vote recount found that the numbers were inflated in favour of the APNU+AFC Coalition while the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) emerged as the true winner.

Mingo remains in the employ of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) but the News Room understands that he has not shown up at the office for months.

The Guyana Police Force has since launched a criminal probe into the March 2 polls.

    When you try and teef a whole country teefin a few months salary is nothing. Mr. Mingo do yourself a solid and sing a tune about who, what, when, where and how much.

      I agree with you. He’s really a small fish. The smallest. He should now get some sense and cooperate with the authorities, reveal the whole plan and the intellectual authors, and become state witness.

    Cut a deal with the authorities, Clairmont! Tell them you will reveal everything and everyone and let them give you something in return. Don’t be a hero. Your bosses won’t be in court to help you.

      I should say-Your bosses won’t help you serve prison time.
