Head of the Financial Committee of the National Sports Centre Board resigns

On the heels of the statement from the Ministry of Culture and Sports that “virtually all is well” with the renewable energy project at the facility and things are progressing as normal, TNN can disclose that the head of the Finance Committee at the Centre has resigned from the position and from the Board of Directors, in protest.

The resignation comes as the financial head refuses to act retroactively to accomplish things that perhaps should have been done as a normal course of action.

TNN can also disclose that the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Sport, Jennifer Attride-Stirling, wrote the Board and Finance Committee on July 1st, agreeing that the matter needed further investigation, and thanked the committee for allowing them time to carry out same.

The PS wrote: “I can advise that we were not aware of the drawdowns.”    In a later segment of the communication, she added: “Finally, internal audit is a mechanism any organization can use when there is concern about irregularities; as you expressed that concern it is an appropriate option that is available.”

Minister Peets was copied in the communication sent out by the P.S. and was clearly aware of the concerns expressed before the Ministry released the response last night.
