PRESIDENT of the TT Cricket Board (TTCB) Azim Bassarath has told CNC3 there was no improprierty in the appointment of Imran Jan as assistant coach of the TT Red Force.
Bassarath said Jan’s appointment, in October 2017, was a collective decision by the entire executive of the board, and owing to his extensive experience.
According to a CNC3 report last night, a PriceWaterHouseCoopers audit revealed former Sport Company director Jan attempted to approve funding for the TTCB beyond his limit. Jan was appointed assistant coach for the Red Force in October 2017. The audit report said Jan leaked confidential SporTT documents to Bassarath which revealed the amount of money the TTCB would receive from SporTT. Jan was fired from SporTT in November 2017 shortly after the completion of a forensic audit.
