Former Sri Lanka Captain Sanath Jayasuriya has been accused of having breached ICC’s anti-corruption code on two occasions. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged the former Sri Lankan batsman with two counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.
The two codes are Article 2.4.6 and Article 2.4.7. The first one comprises of failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU, including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.
The second breach of code was mentions – Obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.
The accusations levelled on the former Lankan captain relate to the failure or refusal to cooperate with an ACU investigation and obstructing or delaying an investigation, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information which could have been relevant to the case in point.
Jayasuriya, who was chairman of selectors before he stepped down as part of a mass resignation last year, has around 14 days from October 15 to respond to the charges and prove his innocence.
