Sri Lanka Cricket’s corrupt officer is a former member of a financial fraud commission

The office of a Sri Lanka Cricket finance officer, who has allegedly attempted to misappropriate approximately Rs 900 million, has been sealed. Sri Lanka Cricket sources say that the officer in question has not reported to work for several days.
Sri Lanka Cricket was to receive USD 5.5 million from a foreign television channel for telecasting the upcoming England cricket team’s Sri Lankan tour. The above officer had informed the foreign television channel to deposit the money to his personal bank account in Hong Kong, not Sri Lanka Cricket’s bank account.
 
Officials of the foreign television channel had informed the head of finance of Sri Lanka Cricket of this issue, and subsequently, he had informed the Chief Executive Officer. Sri Lanka Cricket has thereafter lodged a complaint with the Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) and the FCID has commenced a special investigation with regard to the complaint. In addition, it is also reported that a special audit will be carried out focusing on Sri Lanka Cricket’s transactions within the last year.   
 
This officer had earlier served as an accountant for a state institution on tourism. He had also worked with a commission which had been appointed to investigate misuse of state funds.
