SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Audits of the Martin Luther King Jr. Commission for the past three years cannot be completed due to an ongoing investigation by state prosecutors.

State Auditor Wayne Johnson on Friday released the audit for the 2014 fiscal year but included a disclaimer because there wasn't enough information to render an opinion.

The 2015, 2016 and 2017 audits are pending because state auditors don't have access to adequate financial records to substantiate the balances presented on the commission's financial statements.

The commission had requested waivers for 2015 and 2016. Johnson denied the request, saying that completing the past due audits will help provide the public with a clear view of the financial picture.

The former head of the commission was indicted earlier this year on fraud, embezzlement and other charges.
