May 27, 2017: The Ministry of Finance wishes to correct an erroneous news report aired on CNC3 TV on the night of Thursday 25th May 2017.

In this CNC3 story it was alleged that a “source” had told the station that the Ministry of Finance gave initial approval for overseas travel by members and staff of the National Lotteries Control Board and then withdrew the approval, causing a loss of money spent for bookings already made.

However, the Ministry of Finance has checked its records and has confirmed that the claim made by CNC3 about the alleged grant and withdrawal of approval is wholly inaccurate and incorrect.
