Gov’t has concerns about NCN probe report
-Luncheon says auditor exceeded mandate
Government has concerns about the recommendations made by the auditor who uncovered financial irregularities at the state-owned National Com-munications Network (NCN), Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr Roger Luncheon revealed yesterday.
“I think the review of what the auditor submitted as recommendations… and his specific Terms of Reference [ToR] continue to be a source of some concern by the administration… I for one feel that he overstepped his bounds, went beyond his ToR in the recommendations that had been made and more than likely that has stultified any action on those recommendations,” Luncheon told a news briefing.
“I would want to believe that the matter would have died, but it obviously has not died and actually I suspect that there may well be some imminent interventions, revelations that would bring this matter again to the fore,” he said, when asked for an update.
