* ICC announces amnesty to report information on corrupt conduct in Sri Lankan cricket
Wed, Jan 9, 2019, 10:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 09, Colombo: he International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced a 15-day amnesty to participants who have previously failed to report any information concerning corrupt conduct in Sri Lankan cricket.

The amnesty, which will run from 16-31 January, will apply to all participants under both the ICC and Sri Lankan Cricket Anti-Corruption codes, the ICC said in a media release.

"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," ICC said.

Alex Marshall, ICC General Manager - Anti-Corruption, said this is the first time the ICC has held an amnesty.

"It is in response to the very specific challenges we face in Sri Lanka. Allowing retrospective reporting of alleged approaches to engage in corrupt conduct will assist in our ongoing and wide-ranging investigations, as well as enabling us to continue to develop a comprehensive picture of the situation there," Marshall said.

"If any player or participant has any information concerning corrupt conduct they should come forward and share it with us now without fear of any repercussions.

"We would urge any participant with any information that may demonstrate corrupt conduct affecting cricket in Sri Lanka to come forward in the strictest of confidence."

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: contactACU@icc-cricket.com

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.

The ICC said if any participant requires further information regarding the details of the amnesty, they should contact the ICC using the methods detailed above.
