Mingo’s constitutional rights were not breached – Police Force

(Inews Guyana) The Guyana Police Force (GPF) has refuted claims made by lawyers representing Clairmont Mingo that their client’s constitutional rights were breached.

In a statement today from the Office of the Commissioner of Police, the GPF explained that following Mingo’s arrival at the CID Headquarters, Attorney Darren Wade showed up shortly after and demanded immediate conference with the embattled Returning Officer.

The GPF explained that the police rank on duty directed the attorney to a designated area where access to his client would be granted after the police officer completed making the necessary entries into police records.

“However, instead of waiting in the area indicated and without any explanation Mr Wade immediately left the CID Headquarters compound and met with several members of the media on the road way, where he spoke with them and during which he proceeded to make some false allegations,” the GPF explained.

After interacting with the media, Attorney Wade returned to the CID Headquarters where he met with his client.

Mingo was arrested on Tuesday at his Mahaicony, East Coast Demerara (ECD) home and escorted to the CID Headquarters, where he is being questioned in relation to the well-documented attempts to alter the results of the recently concluded election.

Through his lawyers, Mingo has since aproached the High Court to order his release from police custody.
