Trinidad and Tobago's Minister of Sport has been forced to resign following public dissatisfaction surrounding the corrupt LifeSport programme [1], in which millions of dollars were allegedly funneled out to fund criminal activities and contractors were reportedly paid huge sums of money [2] without actually doing any work.

Wired868 republishes [3] the full text of his resignation letter to the Prime Minister and her response, noting that the former minister was careful to “[admit] no wrongdoing”.
