Guyana’s chief elections officer, Keith Lowenfield, has been bailed after being arrested on Saturday and questioned by police as investigations continued into alleged electoral fraud in the March 2 general and regional elections.
The police say several allegations were put to him in the presence of his attorney. “After being told of the allegations, Mr Lowenfield exercised his right to remain silent. Thereafter, a confrontation was held between him and a witness and once again Mr Lowenfield opted to remain silent,” a spokesman for the Guyana Police Force said.
He is already facing criminal charges for alleged misconduct in public office and fraud.
