Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) President Alfredo Whittaker says the group is focusing on growth initiatives amidst Monday’s (4 June) arrest of a former administrator reported to be former Treasurer Canover Watson. Mr. Whittaker said it won’t derail the group’s recent growth initiatives.
“We have no comments on the recent developments. We will allow the authorities to do their job and will assist them in any way that we can. Our focus is on the development of football. We are currently organising to host the CFU Boys Under-14 Challenge Series in August, as well as preparing our Girls Under-15 National team for the CONCACAF Girls Under-15 Championships in August, and our Men’s National team for the CONCACAF Nations League in October,” he said.
In a statement Monday, the Anti-Corruption Commission said investigators arrested a 47-year-old George Town man. It did not name the man but said the arrest was is connection with an ongoing investigation and previous arrests made in June of 2017. Former CIFA First Vice President Bruce Blake and former Treasurer Canover Watson were arrested within that time frame.
