JAMAICA OBSERVER – In the clearest sign yet it intends to resist the recommendations of Caricom’s Governance Review Panel, the West Indies Cricket Board says it has retained the services of Dominican lawyer Anthony Astaphan.
During its regular quarterly Directors meeting in Rodney Bay here Saturday, the WICB announced that Astaphan would serve as an “advisor to look at the recommendations for the Caricom final report on governance of cricket”.
Astaphan, a Senior Counsel and former president of the Bar Association of Dominica, delivered a presentation to directors during the morning session of the meeting on Saturday.
A WICB release quoted Astaphan as saying that the way forward “will look at how both organisations can work together for the benefit of the improvement of cricket on and off and the field.”
“A full paper will be prepared and will be available for presentation to the Prime Ministers’ committee,” the WICB said.
