Food Production Minister, Devant Maharaj, says he was informed that some Agriculture Society of Trinidad and Tobago (A.S.T.T) board members took alleged evidence they had about questionable dealings to the Fraud Squad.
The minister made the comments during Thursday’s cabinet news briefing held at the Prime Minister’s St Clair Office.
However, responding, President of A.S.T.T, Dhano Sookoo, said claims of mismanagement was ridiculous.
She told News Power Now there were strict procedures to follow before funding was released.
Ms. Sookoo said the group complies with regular auditing requirements.
