Following mounting pressure for him to step down Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar, says she has accepted the resignation of Sport Minister, Anil Roberts.
She made the revelation at the weekly post cabinet news briefing on Thursday, at the San Fernando Teaching Hospital, Chancery Lane, San Fernando.
Last week the Prime Minister received the report from the Central Audit Committee of the Finance Ministry on the controversial Life Sport Programme.
Earlier this year the media highlighted several financial improprieties in the initiative.
A copy of the report has also been forwarded to the DPP, the acting commissioner of police, the integrity commission and the head of the public service.
