Government to present report detailing corruption, financial irregularities, visa racketing at GCB to ICC

The construction of the two hostels at La Bonne Intention (LBI) and Anna Regina are among the major issues

The Government of Guyana is presently preparing a dossier on Guyana’s recent troubled administrative past by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) to send to the International Cricket Council (ICC) so that it may inform future discussions, according to a government source yesterday.
The source also indicated that this document will be finished by this weekend and it will outline, according to the source, all the allegations of financial improprieties, executive lawlessness, among other things, prior to the formation of the government’s Interim Management Committee (IMC) last December.
“All I can say at this point, the alleged financial improprieties within the GCB over the past two years was identified as the main concern by government in their report to the ICC,” the source added.
The GoG established the IMC to handle the affairs of cricket in Guyana after a controversial Annual General Meeting last May, which saw Ramsey Ali winning the presidency, taking over from longstanding president Chetram Singh and after a recommendation by Chief Justice (ag) Ian Chang in a ruling last August.Yesterday, this publication also learnt that that the audits that were conducted by Design and Construction Services Limited (D&CSL) might find a place in the report, especially since both those audits had unflattering findings.
In the D&CSL report it was noted that it was “unable to provide a comprehensive audit on the construction of two hostels due to the conflicting information provided by the Board, hence DCSL could not have commented on actual payments made to the contractors.”
