Cricket Board calls for audit of government agency
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – President of the Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board Azim Bassarath appealed to the government of the two-island republic to conduct a full audit of the operations of the Sport Company of T&T.
The board of the government agency, which is for all intents and purposes the country’s national sports commission, was relieved of its responsibilities by the Cabinet last week, following the presentation of an audit into the Ministry of Sport’s controversial Life Sport programme.
“We applaud the Government for initiating an investigation into the Life Sport programme and the subsequent actions taken in the light of what has been revealed,” said Bassarath in a media release.
“However, we feel that the work is half-complete until a similar scrutiny is made of the way SPORTT disbursed its funds.”
