The Sport Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT) has sacked five employees following the completion of a forensic audit conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers. The five were among eight SporTT employees who were sent on administrative leave four months ago. The most high profile of those to be sacked is Sport Company CEO Adam Montserin which will trigger the eighth change at the helm of SporTT since its inception in 2004.
According to reports, the employees were called into a meeting yesterday morning at the Sport Company’s office in Couva and informed they were fired.
A media release yesterday stated, “The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago has been advised that the PwC forensic audit is substantially complete and a draft report has been submitted to the Ministry of the Attorney General. As you are aware, the audit falls under the auspices of the Ministry of the Attorney General. In relation to the eight employees who were sent on administrative leave, a total of five employees have been dismissed. These employees were dismissed for various reasons but some were dismissed for conduct during the audit as well as certain findings made during the audit. No decision has been made to dismiss the remaining three employees at this time and it is expected that their contracts with SporTT will run their course.”
