PM ends Life Sport programme
Read the final report on the Life Sport audit
Published:

The Life Sport programme has been terminated by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar. 

The final report on the long-awaited audit into the controversial Life Sport programme was laid in the House of Representatives by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar this afternoon. 

Read the full report here: http://tinyurl.com/LifeSportAudit.

 

The conclusion of the report states: "From the review it is clear that the Life Sport programme has a number of irregularities judging from the widespread absenteeism, absence of proper procurement practices, overpayment for goods and services and possible criminal activities ranging from fraud (where money has been invoiced and paid but goods and services not supplied) to theft and possible breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act. In addition, statements from members of the Police Service with whom the auditors interacted during the audit of the programme suggest that there may be criminal elements in positions of supervision and coordination within the programme.

Given the substantial breaches identified, it is recommended that this matter be referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions and the relevant law enforcement agencies."

Persad-Bissessar did not comment on the political future of Sport Minister Anil Roberts.

A release from the Ministry of National Security has shed light on the events that led to media reports of a bomb scare at the T&T Parliament yesterday.

Journalists on social media yesterday reported a bomb scare after employees were seen streaming out of Parliament building and an adjoining tower at the International Waterfront Centre, Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain. But subsequent social media posts from the Parliament said it was a test of the emergency evacuation procedure.

"All agencies of National Security, other government ministries and other public offices, including critical infrastructure, are involved in a series of readiness drills nationwide," the Ministry of National Security said in its release today.

Law enforcement agencies and protective services will do the drills, which will be coordinated through the National Operations Centre to prepare for any disaster or emergency without any forewarning, the release said.
