Police launch probe into financial mismanagement at Guyana Cricket Board

The Guyana Police Force has launched an investigation into the financial affairs of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB), Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee disclosed today.

Rohee at a press briefing told reporters that he had written to the Police Commissioner (ag) Leroy Brummell requesting that the police force conduct an immediate investigation into the affairs of the GCB. “There is a general belief that everything is not all right with respect to the financial activities of the Guyana Cricket Board. There are certain documents which have to be perused in order to ascertain the extent to which this situation obtains” he noted.

Critics have chided the government for not moving earlier against the GCB and applying pressure against those who were resisting changes. They noted that the very issues the police will now probe had been raised publicly as far back as two years.

Over the past two years the GCB has been wracked with allegations about financial improprieties, unaccountability and other matters including improperly acquired visas. Matters came to a head when a member of the board was doused with acid after having raised concerns about board activities.
