Sports Minister entertains match fixers


Newly appointed Sports Minister Faizer Musthapha yesterday met members of the Executive Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket. SLC in a media release said that the Ex-Co members handed the audited financial report of the board. Among the members, present during the meeting were some of the main culprits named in a report that looked into match-fixing in domestic cricket. Musthapha’s predecessor Dayasiri Jayasekara appointed eminent lawyer Kalinga Indatissa to look into corruption in domestic cricket match between Panadura SC and Kalutara PCC at Surrey Village, Maggona. The report while making some startling revelations pointed out some adverse remarks on certain members of the Executive Committee and wanted them probed for corrupt practice. However, following the Cabinet reshuffle, it seems that the report has been swept under the carpet. The AGM of SLC will be held later this month.
