Enrique Livan, who is an IT staff at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), has been arrested as police continue to investigate allegations of electoral fraud at the March 2 polls.
Livan was previously questioned by police on the evening of March 4 when the tabulation of votes for District Four at the Office of the Returning Officer [Ashmins Building] was obstructed.
Party agents and other observers became suspicious when Livan, after complaining of feeling tired and wanted to conclude the tabulation process, left the room with a flash drive and computer – both of which were being used during the tabulation process.
The police were called in and Livan was questioned.
The next day, embattled Returning Officer Clairmont Mingo made a fraudulent declaration which was eventually overturned by the courts.
Several persons, including Mingo, have been taken into custody as police continue to investigate the alleged electoral fraud.
