Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield is expected to appear in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court tomorrow morning to answer to criminal charges.
Moments ago, General Secretary of The New Movement (TNM), Josh Kanhai told Guyana Standard that Lowenfield has been officially served today.
He said, “Lowenfield has been evading the summons but fortunately, after careful planning and strategizing, he was served at GECOM Secretariat’s office. Mr. Lowenfield is expected to be present in Court tomorrow morning, July 24th, 2020, at 9:00hrs to face the private criminal charges brought before him.”
The fraud charges were filed against Lowenfield by activist, Desmond Morian and Kanhai.
Last month, Khanhai told Guyana Standard, “I see him (Lowenfield) as a criminal. In good conscience, I believe that the people of Guyana deserve to see this statutory officer, who betrayed their trust, face the brunt of the law, and answer for his misgivings.”
Kanhai is convinced that Lowenfield acted out of his jurisdiction and acted against the people of Guyana when he presented the numbers reflected in his latest report. The political activist said that Lowenfield acted out of bounds when he opted to disenfranchise 150,000 voters for the benefit of one party. “He is robbing the Guyanese people and he deserves to face the court for his actions,” said Kanhai.
