Life Sport audit in House today

Friday, July 25, 2014

The long-awaited audit on the controversial Life Sport programme will be laid in the House of Representatives by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar this afternoon. The report is expected to confirm or deny allegations of wrongdoing under the programme which was administered under the Ministry of Sport. 

Several allegations were made that the programme was being used to fund criminals and there were reports of death threats issued to executive officers and others employed under the programme. 

Curtis “Tallman” Gibson was shot dead last month and Life Sport executive Ruth Marchan has gone into protective custody after being initially placed in a safe house by Chaguanas West MP Jack Warner. Gibson was Marchan’s bodyguard. In a release yesterday, Persad-Bissessar said the audit was complete and she had received the report and would table it today.
