Police this afternoon arrested GECOM’s Returning Officer for District Four, Clairmont Mingo at his Mahaicony home and he is now in custody at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Headquarters at Eve Leary.
According to reports Mingo was arrested in connection with electoral fraud. The police last week announced that they have launched an investigation into the March 2nd elections and the events that occurred during the ensuing five months up to when President Irfaan Ali was declared winner on August 2nd.
Mingo had created chaos at the Ashmins Building on High Street on March 5th after he used a spreadsheet to declare the APNU+AFC coalition the winner of District Four though his numbers were later proven to be false. He persisted with the false numbers even after a court order.
