A number of top sports administrators and officials are being investigated by the US Embassy in Grenada and Barbados for an alleged Visa application scam.

According to confirmed reports from both Embassies at least five people are being investigated following what they say were irregularities uncovered during some visa application processes.

Reports are that the investigations surround officials from the Grenada Football Association, The Grenada Olympic Committee and a senior Ministry of sports official amongst others.

Two days following the departure of the National Women’s Olympic team for Puerto Rice in August, it is alleged that five persons went to Barbados to apply for Visas claiming to be footballers and football officials, who were attempting to go meet up with the team.

Upon further scrutiny, it was discovered that their declarations were false and at least one of the five persons was an entertainer.  It is also being reported that the letter submitted to officials at the US Embassy in Barbados were fake – in some cases bearing forged signatures.

It has also been confirmed that already, more than five people have been questioned by the office of the Director of Public Prospection here in Grenada, while the acting US Charge D’Affiares at the Lance Aux Pines office spearheads the investigation on the local front.

Our newsroom contacted officials at the US Embassy Barbados and was told that the investigation is being undertaken and also promised to have us speak to the investigating officer at a later date.

President of the GFA, Cheney Joseph was also contacted by our news desk and he confirmed that he has been informed about the investigation and is spearing no efforts in assisting.
