Former Minister of Public Health, Volda Lawrence was this morning released on $100,000 bail after she appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts for private criminal charges related to the March 02, General, and Regional elections.

The charges were filed against her in March 2020 by now Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports Charles Ramson Jnr.

According to the particulars of the charge, Clairmont Mingo, Returning Officer of Region 4, having been procured by Lawrence on or about March 5, 2020, at the Command Centre for the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) on High and Hadfield Streets, Georgetown uttered to the Chief Elections Officer (CEO), Keith Lowenfield, the results for Region Four, knowing it to be forged, with intent to defraud the people of Guyana.

Ramson, as well as other members of the governing People’s Progressive Party (PPP), have stated on numerous occasions that Mingo’s declaration of Region Four results, which gave the APNU+AFC the win for that Region, was absolutely false since their copies of Statements of Poll prove otherwise.

Lawrence will make another court appearance on September 11, 2020.
