The acting general manager of the Airports Authority (AATT) Dayanand Birju has resigned.
Transport Minister Stephen Cadiz yesterday confirmed the resignation. He said he was awaiting a report on the matter.
The Express was unable to contact Birju for comment yesterday.
Former deputy chairman of the AATT Kurt Ajodha resigned after it was disclosed that there were issues with his academic qualifications.
Ajodha resigned from his post in June after Diego Martin North East MP Colm Imbert questioned the degrees on his resume.
The AATT recently got a new chairman, Trevor Benjamin, and deputy chairman, Carol Cuffy-Dowlat.
Communications Minister Gerald Hadeed was AATT chairman but his appointment was not renewed when his tenure expired.
The Sunday Express has reported that Cadiz will have to deal with contracts awarded under Ajodha and whether to have them re-tendered. The two contracts which have yet to be ratified are for consultancy services for the southwest perimeter road at Piarco International Airport and for repairing and restoring granite tiles in the duty-free area of the airport.
