Ministry not in a position to assist Shewdas
—Dr Anthony tells National Assembly
Culture Minister Dr Frank Anthony yesterday said that the ministry was not in a position to assist power lifting champion Gumendra Shewdas who was found guilty of a doping infringement last year because the ministry was not aware of the hearing.
“When the hearing and back and forth correspondence were going on, we were not aware. The hearing was already happening and the sentence was already passed… I guess we have to learn from these things,” Dr Anthony said.
