THE Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) is insisting that it conducted due diligence before appointing Jefferson Miller as its chief executive officer.

In announcing that it had agreed to a mutual separation with the newly-convicted felon, the BCA said in a statement yesterday that prior to taking up the appointment, Miller produced a police certificate of character from Broward County in Florida and its own checks revealed he did not have an arrest record.

“The BCA wishes in the circumstances to assure its membership, and the public, that all reasonable due diligence was conducted in this matter, prior to the appointment of Mr Miller to the post of chief executive officer of the BCA,” the local governing cricket body said.

“Significantly, the information regarding Mr Miller’s conviction and sentence came to light subsequent to Mr Miller’s completion of his probationary period and confirmation by the BCA’s board on September 22, 2014.”
