Guyana: Police say Myers was arrested for `conspiracy to defraud’, not detained because she remained silent

The police today refuted a claim made by Nigel Hughes a lawyer for the Deputy Chief Election Officer, Roxanne Myers who was arrested yesterday.

A statement by the police force follows:

Contrary to statements attributed to Mr. Nigel Hughes, one of the Attorneys for Deputy Chief Election 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.
