Former chairman of the Transport Board, Anthony Wiltshire, is claiming that there are discrepancies in the Auditor General’s report, which has resulted in an investigation by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) into financial management of the cash-strapped state-run entity.

Speaking before the PAC on Monday, Wiltshire said that in the report, which red-flagged the frequency of transmission repairs, double invoicing and missing bus parts, some of the figures do not match with his recollection of the facts, suggesting that the Auditor General may have been fed inaccurate information. 

“Quite frankly, when I look at this special audit which came in the package, it did indeed open my eyes to a number of things, in particular the cost and invoices for transmissions. I must say that I am not aware of these costs because as far as I am concerned, the board never had any account of these figures for 2014 and 2013; we had different figures. . . ,” said Wiltshire.
