Guyana: Volda Lawrence placed on $100,000 bail over elections fraud charges

PNCR Chair Volda Lawrence was today placed on $100,000 bail after appearing before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennon on private criminal charges including conspiring to forge documents to show a win for APNU+AFC at the March 2nd general elections.

The charges were filed in March by Charles Ramson Jr against Lawrence and District Four Returning Officer Clairmont Mingo in relation to the controversial results for District Four. Attempts to serve the notices on them had not succeeded.

Lawrence, the former Minister of Public Health, appeared before the Chief Magistrate without being served and was read the indictable charge.  This was confirmed by Special Prosecutor Glenn Hanoman.  He also said that Mingo is yet to make an appearance.
