Gov’t says threats to NLCB Chairman came following financial support audit

The parliament has been told that threats to the Chairman of the National Lotteries Control Board came following the board’s decision to suspend all recurrent sponsorship arrangements pending an audit by the company’s marketing and public relations department on the validity of the financial support.

Stuart Young, Acting Finance Minister and Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, made the revelation in the House of Representatives.

He said the development took place in June 2016.

Mr Young was at the time responding to a question from the Opposition which wanted to find out the circumstances surrounding the provision of security for the NLCB Chairman.
