The private criminal charges filed against the Chief Election Officer are still in place but the Court is now awaiting a decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions about whether the charges will continue.
Attorney Nigel Hughes who is representing the interest of the Chief Election Officer had written to the DPP requesting that the charges be discontinued.
At the time, the DPP was not in receipt of the statements from the Attorneys for the PPP and TNM representatives who filed the private charges.
The Attorneys have since indicated to the Court that the DPP has requested the statements.
Once the statements are received, the DPP will decide on whether the charges will continue against the GECOM CEO.
Back in July, Mr. Lowenfield was charged with conspiracy to commit a felony and misconduct in public office.
He was granted bail in the sum of $450,000 on the private charges which were filed against him by representatives of the People’s Progressive Party and The New Movement party.
The charges were related to a final report that Lowenfield had compiled for the GECOM Chairperson following a ruling in one of the election cases.
Lowenfield’s next Court appearance has been set for the 24th August if the charges are not discontinued by then.
