Statement from Alex Marshall – ICC General Manager – Anti-corruption
“We are approaching the end of the first week of our 15-day amnesty to participants who have previously failed to report any information concerning corrupt conduct in Sri Lankan cricket. I am encouraged by the number of people that have come forward and the new information we’re receiving as a result. This intelligence is assisting our ongoing and wide-ranging investigations in Sri Lanka as well us enabling us to continue to develop a comprehensive picture of the situation there.
“I would urge any more players or participants who have any information concerning corrupt conduct to come forward over the next week and share it with us in the strictest of confidence without any fear of repercussions.”
The International Cricket Council (ICC) is holding a 15-day amnesty from 16-31 January to participants who have previously failed to report any information concerning corrupt conduct in Sri Lankan cricket. It applies to all participants under both the ICC and Sri Lankan Cricket Anti-Corruption codes.
Under these codes, both domestic and international participants are obliged to report, without delay, full details of any approaches, incident or information that they receive to engage in corrupt conduct. Failure to do so is a serious offence and can result in a ban from cricket of up to five years. However, under the amnesty, any information reported by a participant will not attract a charge for their failure to report previously.
Reports can be made 24 hours a day in a number of ways:
ICC Integrity App, which is available for download by searching ‘ICC Integrity’ via the Apple ‘App Store’ or ‘Andriod Apps’
ICC ACU Hotline: +971 565 458909
ICC ACU e-mail: [email protected]
The ICC also has an ACU representative based in Sri Lanka throughout the duration of the amnesty, who can be contacted using the same ICC Integrity App, ACU Hotline number or ACU e-mail address as detailed above.
If any participant requires further information regarding the details of the amnesty, they should contact the ICC using the methods detailed above.
