UKIP candidate Hugh Mennie is to be charged over allegations he used fake signatures on his election nomination form.
Mennie has allegedly “falsified details” to stand for election in Cambridgeshire County Council and is accused of forging three signatures in the election paperwork. Specialist prosecutor for the CPS, Simon Ringrose, has stated that there is sufficient evidence of these falsifications and believes it to be in the public’s interest to charge Hugh Mennie with “one count of causing or permitting a false statement to appear in a nomination paper”.
Hugh Mennie will appear before the Cambridge magistrates court on 5 September.
