Justifying the main purpose for LifeSport, former Minister of Sport, Anil Roberts said too many youth were being led astray and lived a life of crime.
Sitting in with the Power Breakfast show this morning on Power 102, Roberts said he used the opportunity as a government Minister to assist young men who were either on the street or in gangs.
Adding that LifeSport was meant to be used as a crime fighting tool and act as a barrier to protect those from continuing a dangerous lifestyle, Roberts said he was able to help turn around some of the worst harden criminals in several communities.
Highlighting what took place with the $400M audit into LifeSport, the former Minister said he was no way under investigation and made sure all checks and balances were done during his tenure at the Ministry.
When asked by talk show host Wendell Stephen if he would have resigned as Minister even if a report was not made, Roberts said any information he received would have been passed to the police.
Justice Mira Dean-Armorer ruled at the Hall of Justice in Port of Spain that several former senior members of the Sport Ministry were not afforded the opportunity to be heard before the report was made public.
