Imbert seeks clarity on LifeSport

On July 25, 2014, then prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar announced the termination of Life Sport in Parliament. She said the findings of the audit team included procurement breaches; a deviation from the mandates of Cabinet; involvement of some persons in criminal activities; fraud by suppliers; theft of equipment; breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act; and poor control and monitoring by officers of the Sports Ministry.

Then sports minister Anil Roberts subsequently resigned from the Cabinet and as D’Abadie/ O’Meara MP on July 31, 2014.

Roberts resurfaced for the first time in public at a United National Congress (UNC) meeting in Diego Martin on Monday. Efforts to contact former finance minister Larry Howai, who oversaw the audit into LifeSport, were unsuccessful.
