Chris de Caires Says Finances Of Cricket World Cup Barbados Are None Of Your Damn Business

LOC: CWC Figures Within 3 Months

THE TRUE FINANCIAL PICTURE of World Cup Barbados should be known within the next three months.

Whether it will become known to the public, however, is not certain. At a Press conference held by the Local Organising Committee (LOC) yesterday at Kensington Oval, chairman Chris de Caires stated:

“I expect we will be in a position over the next three months to have most of the financial information available and finalised, and at the end of that time, we would then have to settle up all arrangements with the shareholders.”

However, when asked if this information would be made public, de Caires said he was “not sure”.

The question was also raised about whether the LOC had any concerns about hiring one of its own board members as an employee.

Board member Allyson Leacock was hired as an executive consultant to produce the entertainment package for the closing ceremony. de Caires said that it was not a matter the LOC was concerned about

And Nevermind About That Conflict Of Interest Either!

Of course De Caires is not concerned about Conflicts of Interest. He’s just following the Prime Minister’s lead in giving preferential treatment to his current wife when she was a government employee.

After a while, these birds can’t even distinguish what is ethical and what is not.
