Newsletter - October 2023 Supplementary

The below communication was sent to the club yesterday following the further concerning press stories from the India press
October 13, 2023

Dear Steve,

The Blackburn Rovers Supporter’s Trust ‘We Are THE Rovers’ are most concerned at the latest Indian Government Enforcement Directorate (ED) action against the owners of our Club.

We understand the investigation relates to “illegal remittances made by the company since 2010, till date, to its wholly owned subsidiary named Venky’s London Limited, Cardiff, UK.” The ED appears to directly implicate transactions relating to Blackburn Rovers.

Clearly, this is of major concern to our Supporter’s Trust. At the very least we would like to see a public statement from the Club as to any implications for Blackburn Rovers; we do however recognise you will want to pass any statement before the Club owners.

Our next Trust meeting is not with yourselves until the 14th November, this is over one month away. If at all possible we would like the opportunity of an earlier meeting to discuss the single issue of the serious enforcement action against the owners, their future commitment to our Club and day-to-day funding. Can this please be arranged with some urgency even if it via Zoom?
