CHAUDHRI: Mike Babcock’s resignation should not end investigation
“The leads program received your correspondence and has sent it to the national leads centre for review,” the Sept. 11 email to Aliu from the CRA said, according to the TSN report.
The CRA told TSN that it is “prohibited from releasing any information or updates about the leads we may receive or subsequent actions taken.”
The TSN report said that Aliu filed the complaints after the sport media outlet reported in April that a prospective buyer of a GTHL organization alleged that he had a deal in place to buy one for $375,000 and was coached on how to circumvent league rules.
That was after the GTHL had opened multiple investigations into allegations that teams and organizations were improperly bought and sold, TSN reported in March.
Ontario Tourism, Culture and Sport Minister Neil Lumsden also announced in April that an independent investigation of the GTHL was in the works.
The league did not reply to a request for comment on the CRA review, TSN said.
