Cases of Objection, Rejection and Inclusion are being dealt with.

 

The addition data from the process will be consolidated, uploaded and matched with the general Biometric Voter Registration data base in Brussels, Belgium and then Voters ID Cards will be printed from the 4th-5th August 2012.

The Electoral Offences Court was formally launched by the Hon. Chief Justice on the 19th July 2012 at the Law Courts Building in order to handle electoral offences. The 794 fraudulent duplicate cases are currently under investigation and prosecution will be done by the Sierra Leone Police in accordance with the Electoral Laws of Sierra Leone.
