Five Electoral Commission Officials Interdicted Over Missing Biometric Verification Devices

Five officials of the Electoral Commission (EC) have been interdicted following the reported theft of Biometric Verification Devices (BVDs). Dr. Serebour Quaicoe, the Director of Electoral Services at the EC, confirmed this development, stating that the suspects have been handed over to the police for further investigations.

Dr. Quaicoe emphasized the importance of involving the police in the investigation process to ensure a thorough examination of the incident. He reiterated the Commission’s commitment to upholding justice and ensuring that those found guilty of stealing state assets face appropriate consequences.

The incident involved the loss of one BVD in North Tongu. The device was reportedly packaged in a ballot box for transportation but could not be transported along with the others. The matter was promptly reported to the police for investigation.

Dr. Quaicoe stated, “We have lost this and these are the suspects so investigate and let them go through the legal regime. Whatever has to be done should be done. They have been interdicted, they are now going through the investigations. So, the police, I am told, that they will be arraigned before court soon.”
