Finance scrutiny not “mischief-making,” say candidates; FFB has a lot to answer for

By Aaron Humes: The alliance of candidates for the upcoming elections of the executive Committees of the Premier League of Belize and Football Federation of Belize insists they are not mischief makers as labeled by FFB General Secretary, Earl Jones, this week.

No less than three associations – those in Stann Creek, Belmopan and the Belize District, voiced concerns about Federation funding.

Dean Flowers argued that with funding from FIFA and CONCACAF of a total of $2.5 million, there was no need to furlough workers or terminate Kent and Christine Gabourel from their posts, and in fact the Fedration had previously indicated it would not do so.

Flowers also clarified that the associations did not accuse anyone of misappropriating funds; merely asked where the money went.

But footballers do want to know where the savings of nearly a million dollars established in 2018 before Sergio Chuc’s ascension, assigned to travel for national teams went.

The FFB budget was approved in 2018 of about half a million dollars, but spent more than $1.165 million on administrative costs and another $400,000 on the national team for which he needs to answer, said Flowers. The money should have been used for among other things, the travel expenses for women’s and youth teams and the bleachers project at the Federation Stadium.

Flowers also decried the treatment of Women’s Football Director Iris Centeno, who was paid initially $500 per month, shortly reduced to $250, and ultimately terminated while on her hospital bed.
