Cameron calls for fair WICB election
West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) presidential candidate Dave Cameron has written the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) indicating that he had not initiated legal proceedings against them.
However, he called on the BCA to look at the claims made in an exclusive article written in the Trinidad Guardian which, if true, pointed to a violation of established rules and regulations.
The Guardian article stated that Cameron was not treated fairly because his manifesto was sent out nine hours after the BCA received it although their motion to support Dr Julien Hunte was arrived at before they asked both Hunte and himself for their manifestos.
The article cited legal opinion which indicated that the motion to support Hunte had died when the BCA came after and invited both men to send in their manifestos. The WICB will meet in a couple days’ time in Barbados to decide between the two men.
Full text of Cameron’s letter follows:
Mr Gregory Nicholls
Barbados Cricket Association
Dear Sirs: Re: Cameron Considers legal action
I have noticed an article printed in the Guardian Newspapers in Trinidad and Tobago entitled “Cameron considers legal action”. I would like to inform you that the action was not initiated by me. Needless to say, in the true spirit of the game and the institution of cricket, if the allegations in the article are true, they go against the established rules and regulations.
I am registering my discontent about the matter of how my request to address the BCA executive was ignored and subsequently the receipt and dissemination of my manifesto. In keeping with free and fair election, and if the allegation that the process has been distorted is true, I respectfully ask that it be resolved.
W. Dave Cameron
