Election fraud concerns in Calderdale

The Evening Courier reports:

A convicted fraudster has once again been questioned by police over illegal voting claims.

David Ginley, who is hoping to be re-elected for the Conservatives in the Warley ward in next month’s Calderdale Council elections, has been arrested by police on suspicion of election fraud.

As reported in yesterday’s Courier, the 60-year-old and a 39-year-old man were questioned on Monday.

The 39-year-old is believed to be Mohammed Rashid, who is standing for the Conservatives in the Park ward.

Both have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
