Finance Minister, Larry Howai, tells the Senate both the Police Service and the Finance Ministry continue their probes into the controversial Life Sport Programme.

In July 2014 Prime Minister, Kamla Persad Bissessar terminated the Life Sport Programme which targeted at-risk youth.

The move was taken after an investigation by the Finance Ministry revealed alleged procurement breaches, fraud, theft and that people at the coordinating level may have been involved in criminal activity.

Questioned on the matter by the Opposition PNM during proceedings in the Senate this afternoon, National Security Minister, Gary Griffith, said his Ministry had no input in the ongoing probe.

He said the Ministry did not do an audit into the programme because when it was transferred from the Sport Ministry to National Security not to long after the venture was scrapped.
