Finance Ministry responds to claims that the Life Sport Audit was flawed

by | Aug 6, 2014

NEWS GRAPHIC 7The Ministry of Finance and Economy has responded to former Sport Minister Anil Roberts statements of a flawed report.

In his resignation letter to Parliament on Monday, Roberts wondered how a fraudulent report like this Central Audit Committee report made its way into Parliament, and

subsequently into the public domain.

The report was commissioned and laid in Parliament by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar on July 25.

She has since forwarded it to the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Commissioner of Police, the Integrity Commission and the head of the Public Service for action.

Roberts resigned one week after the report was laid.

The Ministry acknowledged in a statement that two pages of a legal opinion by Head of Legal at the SporTT company were inadvertently omitted when the front-and-back

photocopying was being done to compile the final package of documents.

The Ministry noted that even though the pages were omitted from the report, they were examined by the committee during the audit and the pages were missing only from

the final package laid in Parliament.

Therefore they stand by their statement that their findings were based on only those documents duly presented to them for auditing.
