Election investigation closed

| 20/05/2011

(CNS):Two years after it was opened, the RCIPS has now confirmed that the investigation into voting irregularities at polling booths on General Election Day in May 2009 has been closed. A police spokesperson said that no charges would be brought as there was “insufficient evidence” to support them. The investigation was started as a result of reports first made at the George Town Primary School polling station that some UDP supporters were handing out small slips or cards to voters directing them to vote for the four UDP candidates running in the capital’s district. As handing out any material that could be seen as influencing a voter on the Election Day itself is illegal, the police were asked to investigate.

Reports of irregularities were also made at polling stations in Prospect and West Bay, which, it was confirmed at the time by the Elections Office, suggested some political party volunteers may have been attempting to unduly influence voters. Election officials also reported that some voters had gone inside the polling stations holding the cards, and when asked where they came from, they indicated that they had just been given to them outside by UDP representatives.

Field agents representing other candidates in the area as well as voters and other candidates, including PPM George Town representative Alden McLaughlin, all said they had seen the cards, which were the size of a normal business card.

Furhter allegations were made by a number of observers that it was some of the George Town candidates themselves who had given the cards to their representatives at the tent to hand out to voters as they arrived. Election officials and the police were called to the polling station and an election office base was established by the election agent’s tents.

At the time Jonathan Piercy, one of the UDP’s four George Town candidates, said the accusations were merely hearsay and there was no proof that any had been given out by their people on Election Day as the cards had been in circulation for about a week.

Although candidates from both parties and the independents are allowed by law to have their representatives near the polling stations on Election Day, it is illegal to campaign or influence voters in anyway.

According to Section 92 (3) of the Elections Law, on polling day candidates are not allowed to publish any printed material which invites or induces the public to vote for a particular candidate or group of candidates and anyone contravening this section is liable to a fine of up to $500 or six months in prison. The question of undue influence, however, could also give rise to a more serious question of whether the vote and ultimately the result would be unfairly influenced.

Following the election in the first sitting of the new parliament on 27 May, Alden McLaughlin, a member for George Town who is now opposition leader, said he had seen the cards being given out.

“I sat in my car and asked a supporter of ours to attend the UDP tent, where she was handed (this) card with the four UDP candidates and their numbers and she was encouraged to vote for these four,” he said showing one of the cards to his legislative colleagues. “This is a pre-printed card, a clear indication of an organised effort to influence voters. We have a duty as candidates … to be sure that this kind of behaviour does not creep in and undermine the election processes.”

McLaughlin did state, however, that he did not believe the cards had necessarily impacted the vote.

    This is what makes Cayman a third world country. A third world Banana Republic is better of than us…at least they have food to eat, if no work!

    I would love to hear what exactly would be considered sufficient evidence.

    It took RCIPS two years to investigate something like this where evidence literally slapped them in the face and what was the result, case closed due to lack of evidence. What?! Sorry RCIPS but you all are incompentent (not all of the officers) and probably can't even solve a puzzle much less a simple case as this. Make it have been a little man on the corner taking a spiff of Ganja, minding his business and see how quick they'll bail out the station(s) in droves to apprehend him, with guns, dogs and chopper hoovering over head. Better yet, try going 2 miles over the prescribe speed limit or you having an expired coupon and see how quick they'll chase you done to give a ticket. It is sad though that the Election office has heard of voters being intimidated or I should say solicitation was going on and didn't do a doggone thing about it. I wonder what would have happen of an Independant or an PPM candidate(s) agent(s) did the samething? I guess they'll be locked up in her majesty hotel (prison) today for 100 years.. The law only applies to a few and the others with all evidence pouring like rain ends up getting a slap on the wrist. Well, there goes another case involving this particular political party gone unpunished, but there's going to be a day of judgment come May 20th 2013, where the voters will the judge, jury and executioner.

    • cow itch says:

      Could you at least provide documentation or evidence so we can affirm that those police officers you are talking about, are UDP supporters?  And secondly, you haven't post anything to show that the case was closed for some other reason than insufficient evidence, could you not at least make a claim that you have some sort of evidence to prove it was closed because of political influence?

      I am sorry, I am one of those who just like to follow the facts and my common sense.

        How much more evidence do you and the police want?? A bloody confession by the perps?? They had eye witness accounts, statements, photos, the slips of paper, and the police even saw for themselves!!!

      • Anonymous says:

        Common sense should tell you (a) that there was plenty of evidence in the form of the physical evidence of the cards themselves, eyewitness testimony, photographic evidence and direct testimony ofpersons who directly experienced being solicited in this way, and (b) the matter actually required very little investigation and certainly did not require two years of it. The rest is reasonable inference based on past conduct of such matters.

        If you follow the facts and your commonsense you cannot come to the conclusion that this was a bona fide investigation which failed for want of evidence.

    You lop-sided guys don't know what you're talking about. PPM were looking for votes just like UDP, trying to influence people to vote thier way. So don't make this look like its all UDP.

      Hey Chris (as if we really believe your name is Chris, yeah right!), PPM was not handing out pieces of paper with their candidates names on it like the UDP was doing, so YES this is "all UDP" XXXX but we expect no better from the UDP!

    So basically it was illegal but leadership "belives" its O.K.

    Its not illegal for leadership and their tribes.

      I did not expect anything dfferent, what a dirty world we live in (in Cayman). I reported suspicious activity at the polling booth at GT Primary  & actually took a police officer & an election official to the woman who had a purse containing the pieces of paper with names on it (all UDP GT candiates of course), but they did nothing about it! They let her go! The same dirty behavior was happening at Prospect Primary & other polling booths & was allowed to continue despite complaints, so why would I expect anything to be done now? Never mind, their dirty ways will soon catch up with them, their days are numbered (they cannot get away with it forever)

    It is ironic how much time and effort goes into the detailed discussion of the constitution and really the enforcement of law and order seems to be very selective in this country.

    You hear all the time about the laws being in place but remain unenforced.

    The civil servants caught stealing gas were not charged, the election laws are ignored. No wonder young people growing up here do whatever they want. Speed limit laws forget about it. teenager hit and kill someone with a car, slap on the wrist, teenager rob a store with a machete, slap on the wrist.

    This is a country with many 1st world amenities with a 3rd world view of the legal system.

    Another example of, at the very least, gross incompetence….what with the printed evidence and witnesses!

    Or something much worse…."Corruption"?….oh no, Cayman is a Christian Nation…. it's even written in the "Modernised Constitution".

    And the Police took two years to "investigate" this? Two years?


    • Eugene says:

      I have an idea. How about lets ask the UDP if the slips were being handed out. That would give us a very good idea of just how capable they are of telling the truth.

    • Eugene says:

      There was nothing to investigate. The evidence is right there for all to see. It took them two years to deside whether to lie in their own interests or tell the truth. That is a much more complicated matter.

      The RCIPS found insufficient evidence? What a shocker.

    I bet you if the person handing out those voter cards had a single ganja spliff or his car registration was expired they would be on him like white on rice and they would be buried underneath the jail.What with all these foreign officers in the RCIPS.

    • Anonymous says:

      It is funny you talk about foreign officers. XXXX I saw an Indian police officer at the airport and I approached him. I asked him "Did you apply for this job from India or did you apply when you were here?"

      He seemed a little put out but answered me anyway. He told me that he had applied while he was already here. So here we have a foreigner who probably camehere on some kind of hospitality/service permit and then applies for a job in RCIPS and is SUCCESSFUL! Yet we have Caymanians who cannot get jobs and now apparently that extends to their OWN police force.

      I am beginning to believe that there has been a systematic, devious and calculated operation to marginalize the Caymanians in their own country. It is a disgrace and if I was a Caymanian, which I am not, I would be phoning Alden McLaughlin (I wouldn't bother with Bush) and finding out what the hell is going on.

      To rub salt into the wound, I had the misfortune to be arrested last year over a traffic offence and I was held in the cells overnight. The police officer in charge was a Filipino for God's sake! He was the coldest, most heartless officer I have ever had the misfortune of meeting and he treated the Caymanians like dirt in their own country.

      Personally, I think its too late as people in high places are making judgement calls that they have been told to do, and we all know that money talks. I am not going to finish this with God bless us, rather God help us.

        I could have guessed — you were on the wrong side of the law, got caught and dealt with like a criminal? You have no case for civil action, which means the officer acted within the rule of law.

        Stop hating and get on with your life, strive to be a law-abiding resident/citizen.  The Filipino officer was only doing his job. I pray that you will observe the laws of this land and trust that our officers are not disheartened by criminals' hatred.

    Who said crime does not pay, it apparently pays quite well in the Cayman Islands. The RCIPS can add this invesigation to the rest of the extensive list of unsolved "matters".

    It is practically part of Cayman lore that politicians at election time bring more gifts to voters than Santa Claus at Christmas-time.

    It may be just street talk but we hear of appliances being delivered and driveways being paved. (It's always seemed to me that a refrigerator is a very expensive way to buy a vote, but that's just a personal view.)

    More seriously, the issue arises in that in my more than 20 years on the island, I cannot recall even one instance of a successful prosecution regarding improper voter influence or fraud, i.e. the "buying" of votes.

    I am simply wondering aloud why we even have an Elections Office charged with monitoring our election process if it has never even once discovered anything serious amiss.

    If anyone knows of a successful prosecution—or, for that matter, any prosecution at all—in the last 20 or 30 years regarding the improper solicitation or influence of votes, I would appreciate their enlightening all of us CNS readers . . .

      It seems to me that the 1972 elections were so rife with hanky-panky, vote buying, and more serious threats of violence that the Chief Administrator Athel Long had a British warship anchor in the harbour as a "reminder" to keep the peace.

      • Name changed by moderator says:

        My recollection is that the warship was there because certain caymanians were unhappy about the land cadastral survey that was undertaken. I could be wrong. At least Athol Long was a decent governor that could and did make decisions. Something that seems to have been lost by recent governors.

    The amount of money the RCIPS is consuming of our national budget and the return we are getting is a crime in itself, Another prime example of this is with all funds spent on equipment purchase for the Marine Unit including Helicopter and we can only managed to seize 275lbs of drugs. This election investigation fiasco is just another example in the long line of failures by the RCIPS and appears to be a deliberate time delaying strategy it has successful used numerous times to rid itself of political or difficult and troublesome investigations.Closed merely adds insult to injury.

    Is anyone surprised? not one single charge? no evidence? whats that in the picture then ? an optical illusion? If it took 2 years to close the investigation can we see a report on what investigative steps where taken? how many people were questions, how many residences were searched, how many statements taken, where did people say they got the cards? where were they printed? This isnt a single victim robbery, the people of GT were robbed and they deserve to know what was done to investigate this.

      But seriously, the election is long gone, does it make any sense to pursue it!  The UDP are in power now.


      Pursue the case, find UDP guilty, and this will cause us paying more money for another election???  It just does not make any sense!  The case should have been closed a long time ago, and I personally don't believe that UDP supporters were the ones accused of trying to bypass the election legal process. Rather, it was the PPM for that matter. I personally in George Town saw PPM supporters near the election stations, hanging around and talking to people.

      • Anonymous says:

        You clearly don't understand what the law says. You are allowed to "hang around" the polling stations. You would be surprised how many people aren't sure where they should vote and have to ask someone to check the register for them. One year my husband and I had been allocated different polling stations and yes, we do live at the same address.

        The CRIME occurs when you tell someone who to vote for or give them something in writing ON election day. The UDP in GT were caught doing this and aren't even ashamed of it. Of course it affected the result in GT. Of course no one is going to be punished for it. Allowing candidates to cheat and get away with it in an election puts us on that slippery slope that a lot of other countries are on. We will eventually not have democratic elections if this cheating is not stopped.

        Justice is justice. The law is the law. Should I ask if someone killed a family member of yours but they did not find out who it was for 2 years but suddently located the killer would it be okay to say how did you put it…"the murder (elections you had) is long gone, does it make any sense to pursue it!"

        What you and so many of your UDP cronies fail to realise is IT IS THE LAW!!! This is not a selective system where we decide which crimes to pursue and which ones it's okay to get away with. When someone breaks the law they break the law. In this case the law was broken so it HAS TO BE PURSUED.

        The only reason the election is "long gone" is because there was inordinate delay in dealing with the matter.

        Every prosecution costs the country money. Should we just give up on the rule of law altogether in order to save some money?

        That's right – once you are in power you are above the Law. Typical UDP thinking.

        I should have added ensure that the wait is long enough so that you can attempt to revise history.
