PRESIDENT Randy Harris and two other high-ranking Barbados Football Association (BFA) Executive Council members were questioned by police late Tuesday in relation to a matter involving general secretary Chris Graham.
Harris, vice-president Al Walcott and junior assistant secretary Ashton Chapman were all interrogated at Central Police Station in Bridgetown about an incident at the BFA’s office in Fontabelle last Friday.
Graham, who has retained Arthur Holder as his lawyer, also gave a statement to the police on the same night after earlier lodging a complaint against the BFA council members.
Police public relations officer David Welch last night confirmed that Harris, Walcott and Chapman were “warned of intended prosecution by the police”.
In another twist, Graham resigned from his post the same night the incident took place and according to a well-placed source was presented with a cheque for a month’s salary as well as vacation pay.
However, he subsequently wrote the BFA Executive Council members giving a detailed account of what is alleged to have taken place around 5 p.m. on September 6, calling the incident “a dark day in football”.
