Feb 21, Colombo: The government of Sri Lanka has received approval from the cabinet to bring legislation to curb match fixing in sports.

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved a proposal submitted by the Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage to instruct the Legal Draftsman to formulate the laws to address the match fixing in sports.

The Government said the move was taken after considering the recent developments in the world of sports by athletes of several countries in the field of sports such as cricket, football, rugby etc., engaged in match-fixing and the detrimental effect the practice has on the country.
