No evidence of SLC ‘sex scandal’ - Disciplinary Committee

A five-member disciplinary committee of Sri Lanka Cricket has concluded an investigation into an alleged sex scandal involving a woman employee of SLC and has established that no such act of any nature had occurred at the board’s head office.

Reports had revealed last month that a woman hospitality manager and a foreign executive of an entertainment company which sponsored the Sri Lanka Premier League were caught in a compromising position inside the board’s premises, by a security guard.

“Extracts, of the report submitted by the Committee subsequent to the execution of a thorough formal investigation has firmly established that no such act of any nature had occurred at the Sri Lanka Cricket Head Office,” a press release said on Monday.

The report states that there is not a shred of evidence to remotely suggest that any such conduct or incident had taken place at SLC. It further states that “it is apparent that the alleged incident is entirely fabricated by malicious third parties to bring disrepute to SLC and its employees.”

In conclusion the Disciplinary Committee states that there is no proof of any misconduct on the part of any employee of SLC be it sexual in nature or otherwise; as such all publications pertaining to the alleged ‘sex scandal’ are absolutely false, unfounded and fabricated with malicious intent.

Sri Lanka Cricket also said it will be taking necessary measures to counter the baseless allegations given undue publicity by the Media in this connection and that it does not endorse acts of this nature by any party as it is damaging to the image of the institution and its employees, painting an incorrect picture to fans, stakeholders and patrons of Sri Lanka Cricket, with the sole purpose of bringing disrepute to the organization and its staff.
