Myers still in Police lockup for conspiracy to defraud; evaded cops for over a month


See below full press statement issued by the Guyana Police Force in relation to the arrest of Deputy Chief Elections Officer Roxanne Myers:

Contrary to statements attributed to Mr. Nigel Hughes, one of the Attorneys for Deputy Chief Elections Officer, Ms. Roxanne Myers, in various news reports, which purport to give the impression that Ms. Myers was arrested and detained because she exercised her right to remain silent, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) hereby wishes to clear the air.

Ms. Myers was arrested on October 6, 2020, after she turned herself in at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters, Eve Leary, Georgetown, in the company of her Attorneys, one of whom was Mr. Hughes.

This was following a period of time of over a month, during which several efforts were made by the Police to contact Ms Myers even at her place of work in relation to the post-March 2, 2020 elections incidents.

However, those efforts were futile, as Ms Myers made every effort to elude the Police investigators. As a consequence, a Wanted Bulletin for Ms Myers was prepared by the GPF but before it was issued she turned up at CID Headquarters in the company of her Attorneys on October 6, 2020, where she surrendered to the Police.

Further, Ms Myers was promptly arrested for the offence of “conspiracy to defraud” and she was told of the allegation at the said time. She then exercised her right to remain silent.

Ms Myers remains in Police custody as the investigation continues into her actions during the post-March 2, 2020 elections incidents are ongoing.

The GPF wishes to reiterate that Ms Myers was not detained by the Police because she remained silent, contrary to statements attributed to Mr Hughes in the press. This is a distortion of the truth and the GPF rejects same.

    Ms Myers, like Lowenfield and Mingo feel that they are above the law. Their attorneys should be more diligent in informing them THAT not even the President is above the law. Once you do the crime you are exposed to doing the time if found guilty.

    It would be remiss not to mention to Lolo, Mingo ‘n Myers that the Ministry of Culture is looking for some good singers ……. singin’ about de masterminds!
