INSPORTS could face legal action

first_img However, during a series of inquiries into the matter, it was learnt that Andrews had submitted to the agency a sick leave for the period of his absence from duties. Also, regarding the alleged false representation associated with the pension plan, Sagicor was fully responsible for conducting the exercise for appointing trustees. This exercise included a staff meeting for voting process and the issuing of a generic form from Sagicor, which Andrews was advised to sign and return to their offices. When questioned on the matter, Andrews said he was appalled being suspended for these reasons, and indicated that he is being victimised because of his refusal to approve contracts for retirees without the requisite approval from the Ministry of Finance and Public Service. The auditor general, in a recent correspondence to Andrews, has indicated her support for his actions regarding the matter of retirees. In a correspondence with Amos, dated February 13, 2017, Bassie requested a list detailing any other allegation that may be considered. Bassie also indicated his understanding that files have been removed from the premises along with security personnel since his client’s suspension. He further went on to state his understanding that there are plans afoot to remove the security cameras that management had installed. These actions cited would clearly compromise any further allegations from the board of directors. These actions also violate all government policies and procedures. Andrews recently requested the intervention of Sports Minister Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange into the matter. The INSPORTS board of directors could find themselves facing legal challenges from Ian Andrews’ labour attorney, John S. Bassie. Andrews was recently issued a suspension letter from Deputy Chairman, Newton Amos during a recent board meeting. The letter indicated that the suspension is “pending investigation on issues”. Some of the issues reflected in the suspension letter are allegations relative to Andrews’ absence from duty and the island between December 23, 2016 and January 2, 2017 and accusations that Andrews deliberately and calculatedly made false representation as it relates to INSPORTS’ Pension Plan, purported to have been held at a meeting of the board of directors on August 10, 2015.

Omorosa Spills Even More White House Secrets on Big Brother

first_imgCBS’ “Celebrity Big Brother” is turning out to be a great source for secret political intelligence, as reality star, former presidential aide, and ex-Trump booster, Omorosa Manigault, continues to air dirty laundry about the current administration, after her forcible exit from the White House grounds last December.According to The Washington Post, Manigault warned her fellow Big Brother cast members on the Feb. 11 episode about Vice President Mike Pence.Former Presidential Aide Omorosa Manigault continues to make news now that she has left the White House. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)“As bad as y’all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence,” Manigault said.Manigault’s forewarning about Pence, comes days after her declaration on Big Brother that she would never “in a million years” vote for Trump again, after having worked for the businessman and former reality star several times.  Despite her disdain for her former boss, Manigault said that people would begin to have Trump-era nostalgia if Pence became president.“So everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives.  We would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president.”Beyond her reality fame, Manigault is also an ordained minister. Yet, while she proudly admits her Christianity, part of her concern about the vice president is his reliance on Jesus for political advising.“He’s extreme,” Maingault said.  “I’m a Christian.  I love Jesus.  But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things.  I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t saying that.”Trapped together in a studio and isolated from access to the outside world, the celebrities in the Big Brother house, such as television personality, Ross “The Intern” Matthews, admitted to looking forward to the information Manigault leaks.“Every time she opens her mouth, I’m like, ‘Is she going to drop a bomb’,” Matthews said.Presumed as a ploy to remain in the Big Brother house, Manigault did not hesitate to spill more White House tea to her cast mates during their political discussion of issues such as immigration and the Obama-era program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).“No we’re not okay,” she said.  “I’ve seen the plan.  The roundup plan is getting more aggressive.”Having been saved from eviction up to this point, Manigault remains a strong competitor on “Celebrity Big Brother,” which runs until Feb. 25.While Manigualt’s remarks may have kept her in favor at the Big Brother house thus far, the White House was dismissive of her recent comments.During a press briefing last week, White House press secretary Raj Shah said, “Omorosa was fired three times on ‘The Apprentice,’ and this was the fourth time we let her go.”last_img read more
