Date: 11th February 2021

 

PRESS RELEASE – REQUIREMENT FOR A VOTER TO HAVE HIS/HER FINGER INKED DURING THE VOTING PROCESS

 

The Supervisor of Elections would like to remind all Electors that it is a requirement, under Section 45 (9) (d) of the Elections Ordinance, for a voter to have his/her finger inked as part of the voting process. If the voter refuses, he/she will not be allowed to vote.

 

Section 45 (9) (d) of the Election Ordinance (2020 Amendments) states that:

 

“the Presiding Officer shall require the voter to have his finger to be marked with ink or a dye and shall not allow the voter to vote if the voter refuses to have his finger so marked”.

 

This matter was raised during a recent meeting with representatives from both political parties and the independent candidates, and there was consensus that the law governing the marking of a voter’s finger should be strictly enforced, without exception.

 

Please be guided by this as you go to the polling stations on 19 February 2021.

Supervisor of Elections

NOTICE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS

 

NOTICE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS

 

The Director of Public Prosecutions and the Special Investigation and Prosecution Team [SIPT] wish to extend their condolences to the late Mr. Justice Harrison’s family, following his sudden passing, in particular to his widow Doreen who supported him through recent years in his dedication and tireless work and effort in his last case in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

 

An immensely wise, patient and focused jurist whose legal rulings will no doubt be of guidance and assistance to the judiciary for years to come.

 

No lawyer who appeared before Mr. Justice Harrison could fail to have recognised his inexhaustible patience, kindness, compassion, and concern for all involved in the process. A man of gargantuan integrity and moral fibre.    

 

The Director of Public Prosecutions has the constitutional superintendence of the prosecutorial process in the Turks and Caicos Islands. It is therefore for the DPP, having considered  all the appropriate and relevant factors, to make the decision as to what happens next. He will make that decision in due course.
