Harris for fraud probe
President of the Barbados Football Association (BFA),?Randy Harris, wants a police investigation of a “bogus” letter which quoted him as urging football clubs to encourage their members to vote for the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) in last week’s general elections.
Speaking at a Press conference at the National Stadium yesterday, Harris, who took over from Government minister Ronald Jones as BFA?president last September, said he would be making a formal report to police tomorrow.
Harris said the letter, purporting to come from the president and the BFA’s executive members and allegedly signed by him, was read out by Chris Sinckler,the Minister of Finance, at a rally in Independence Square last Wednesday night.
Noting that while he issued a denial on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation and in the NATION?newspaper after being made aware of the letter, Harris wasn’t sure the public heard his side since it came during the height of political campaigning.
