By BBN Staff: Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Transport, Youth and Sports Marconi Leal Jr. is reportedly on personal leave from the Ministry after a number of alleged issues that caused conflict with his Minister Rodwell Ferguson.
Ferguson had previously written to Leal Jr. to inform him that all financial transactions exceeding $5,000 would require his expressed approval. The Minister had told the media he had received information which prompted the decision, alluding to alleged suspicious financial activity that may have been taking place within the Ministry.
This move sparked much speculation about the standing between the Minister and his CEO. Since then, Cabinet Secretary Stuart Leslie reportedly stepped in to resolve the situation.
Reports also suggest Leal Jr. may be transferred to another Ministry, however, nothing has yet been confirmed.
