Dodgy Labour ratbag has case moved to High Court

Dodgy Labour ratbag Daljit Singh is yet to face court on his electoral fraud cases, but the case has finally been escalated to the High Court.

Eight Auckland men, all but one named Singh, have had their trial for alleged electoral fraud moved to the High Court because of the “public interest” in the case.

Labour Party candidate Daljit Singh was charged in mid-2010 with forging voting documents in Auckland’s super-city elections.

His co-accused are Davinder Singh, Mandeep Singh, Virender Singh, Paramjit Singh, Malkeet Singh, Harmesh Singh and Gurinder Atwal.

Daljit, a justice of the peace, is charged with election fraud over the alleged forging of change of address forms for hundreds of voters in south Auckland. 

Singh was backed by Labour and stood for the Papatoetoe Community Board.

He is a real estate agent with Barfoot and Thompson, a marriage celebrant and a licensed immigration adviser.

He belongs to the NZ Sikh Society and convened the Supreme Sikh Council

Singh has previously said the charges were “mischievously brought” and was confident his name would be cleared.

It has taken nearly three years…and still there are outstanding electoral cases the Police haven;t even made a move on yet.

Daljit Singh seems to be friends with a lot of Labour people, including Mayor Len Brown:

    It’s always good that when we accept immigrants they bring their talents with them at the same time. Talents that will be of benefit to New Zealand.

    Unfortunately, electoral corruption isn’t something we really wanted to import.

    I agree this is an occasion where we want to make a very public example of what happens when you cook the New Zealand election results.

    So with the likelihood of the trial not being completed by the time of the local body elections can anything be said about the alleged dodgy dealings during the campaign or has C&R been effectively muzzled by some fancy legal footwork. Opinions please.

    Be interesting to see what idiot features (Len Brown) has to say about his friendship with Singh!!!!!

    Daljit Singh and his cohorts should be either deported or have a long , long stay in a dark damp cell .

    We all know he will get off on a technicality most probably based on a confusion on his part based around his lack of understanding of our culture

    Ah yes had almost forgotten this case – why is that? Is it because Labour are not banging on about election fraud? Where is Mallard with his worn out accusations?
