Two persons who worked with Mingo also arrested


Two employees of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) have been arrested by the Police and are in custody at the Criminal Investigations Unit (CID).

Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum told the News Room Tuesday evening that these two employees worked directly with Returning Officer of Region Four Clairmont Mingo on Elections Day and after the elections.

The Crime Chief said the two employees were arrested at their respective homes on Tuesday.

Mingo remains in Police custody at the CID Headquarters where he is being questioned by detectives.

His Attorney Darren Wade said his phone was seized. Mingo was arrested at his Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara home on Tuesday in relation to the fraudulent elections declaration of March 5 which has his signature.

The Chief Justice Roxane George Wiltshire had thrown out the declaration, saying the tabulation was not done in accordance with the law.

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.

    It would be wonderful if public floggings were still in vogue……not sure I have ever seen a person who deserved it more. An entire Country held hostage for 154 days. 100’s of persons sick from Covid and many will die because of the prolonged rigging started by this bare SK_____T

    Comrades, welcome to the scene of the crime. Mingo is an outlaw who must be summarily punished for the criminal offense against the people and state of Guyana. It was a premeditated crime to know the truth and then try to turn it the opposite way to keep Granger and the Apnu/AFC in office. He was part and parcel of the rigging cabal desperately trying to usurp democracy in Guyana and in its place put in a bunch of incompetent criminals to keep running Guyana down into the dirt.They must be put on trial and face the consequences. For wah a taste good in de goat’s mouth ah later burn he ass.
