Former NCN manager Goolsarran now at the helm of MTV
Former National Commu-nications Network (NCN) Programme Manager Martin Goolsarran quietly assumed the post of General Manager of Multi Technology Vision Inc Channel 14/Cable 65 two months ago.
The former MTV General Manager, Kamini Persaud, was recently let go along with others attached to the newsroom and an acting General Manager had been appointed prior to Goolsarran.
Goolsarran’s appointment has raised eyebrows in light of the fact that he was one of the persons at the centre of an inquiry into financial irregularities at the state-owned NCN two years ago. The NCN board, because of the findings of the probe, had indefinitely suspended Goolsarran.
President Donald Ramotar, who is also the Minister of Information, has repeatedly avoided addressing the financial scandal at the network, which also saw the resignation of then NCN CEO Mohamed Sattaur.
