Police Arrest Man, 32, For Multiple Voter Registration
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, February 22 (LINA) - Police in Gbarnga have charged and sent to court a thirty-two-year-old man for multiple voter registration and forgery.

Multiple voter registration and forgery are in violation of section 10.2 of the Election Law and 15.70 of the Penal Code of the Republic of Liberia.

The Commander of the Crime Services Department (CSD) of the Liberia National Police said Forkpah Mulbah was arrested in Palala on Monday after some residents reported him to the police.

CSD commander John Kelenso Flomo told the Liberia News Agency Mulbah earlier registered in Palala but later used another name to register in River Gee County.

Inspector Flomo said Mulbah was arrested with the two voter registration cards and that during police investigation he admitted to commission of the crime.

Also speaking to LINA at the Liberia National Police Headquarters in Gbarnga, Mulbah admitted to registering twice and appealed to authorities for forgiveness.

Mulbah, who claimed to be a contractor of construction company CICO, said he did another registration in River Gee County after he and other contractors
transported some assets of the company to River Gee to begin work there.

Meanwhile, Upper Bong County Elections Magistrate Daniel Newland says the NEC is closely working with the security and the court system to prosecute violators of the elections law.

This brings to two the number of persons sent to court by the Bong County Police Detachment for multiple voter registration in less than two weeks.

On February 9, 22-year-old Dakina Dennis was arrested for multiple voter registration in Gbarnga City.
