Pan Trin­ba­go of­fi­cials were un­able to present au­dit­ed fi­nan­cial state­ments at the steel­band body’s An­nu­al Gen­er­al meet­ing yes­ter­day be­cause of an out­stand­ing debt of $640,000 owed to its au­di­tors. The AGM was held at the Queen’s Park Sa­van­nah.

This was the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year au­dit­ed fi­nan­cial state­ments were not pre­sent­ed at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s AGM.

The debt to PKF Char­tered Ac­coun­tants & Busi­ness Ad­vi­sors forms part of a $60 mil­lion debt the Bev­er­ley Ram­sey-Moore led Pan Trin­ba­go ex­ec­u­tive were faced with when they took of­fice. This bill has since been re­duced by $18 mil­lion.

Trea­sur­er Ger­ard Mendez re­port­ed that mon­ey was owed to steel­bands, lawyers, staff and ser­vice providers, in­clud­ing au­di­tors.
