KINGSTOWN, ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES; WEDNESDAY JULY 11, 2018 – Trevor Huggins, the former General-Secretary of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation (SVGFF) has accused the newly appointed Acting President of the SVGFF Marvin Fraser, of lying during his Thursday July 05, press conference.
In a July 11, 2018 email written to Fraser, and copied to affiliates of the SVGFF and the media, Huggins stated: Dear Mr Fraser. I did not listen to your press conference. However I read about it on I-Witness-News and the three local newspapers.”
Huggins accused Fraser of seeking to tarnish his reputation by dragging him into the whole World Cup ticket issue.
“Let me make it abundantly clear that I was not in charge with the then president (Venold Coombs) for the tickets. That is why we knew very little about the sales of the tickets,” wrote Huggins in the said email.
He went on to state that “The then President was totally in charge of such. There were very little discussion on the World Cup tickets during executive meetings. Everything regarding the tickets were kept secret by the sole person.”
Huggins further pointed out that this was main reason he did not travel overseas to collect the tickets, and was also the reason why he was suspended, and subsequently dismissed for investigating the resale of the World Cup tickets.
Furthermore in his July 11, 2018 email, Huggins went on to inform Fraser that “I usually back up all my minutes on an external hard-drive.”
He added that in going through them he Huggins “notice you were present whenever that issue came up.”
Huggins then went on to accuse the SVGFF acting president of lying, stating “Hence you lied in your press conference by stating I was involved with the then president, and that you were absent from those meeting.”
According to Huggins he can make these minutes available to the media, but that is not his style, and called for Fraser to withdraw the said statements.
“I wish for you to withdraw that statement you made about me. My court case with the then President is slated for October 3rd in the high Court (open),” stated Huggins.
In conclusion Huggins stated: As you know I was sued because I was on radio talking about the resale of the tickets by the then President. As you have seen everything I stated was true. GOD is such a good GOD.”
