Remarks by Dr. Serebour regarding interdiction of 5 by Electoral Commission Over Missing Biometric Verification Devices in Ghana

What I can say on authority is that we lost one BVD in North Tongu and what happened was that we normally package these things in ballot boxes; you put your systems in and you seal it. In the course of transporting, we got there, they couldn’t transport the ballot boxes.


So, we reported to the police that we have lost this one and these are the suspects so they should 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 said that they will be arraigned before court soon, Dr. Serebour Quaicoe reportedly remarked.
