Sri Lankan sports ministry finds evidence of sex bribes in women's cricket team
According to the Reuters, the controlling body, Sri Lanka Cricket, had ordered an investigation in November after reports emerged alleging officials had asked female cricketers for sex in exchange for being on the team. A three-member committee, headed by retired Supreme Court judge Nimal Dissanayake, submitted its findings in a report to the sport's ministry on Wednesday.
“The committee report found evidence of sexual harassment by members of the Sri Lanka cricket women's management team against several members of the Sri Lanka cricket women's team," the sports ministry said in a statement. “The (sports) minister intends to take disciplinary actions against those members where evidence has been found."
The statement did not give any details of what evidence had been found, which officials were involved, or what kind of action would be taken.
The allegations, which first appeared in the Sinhala-language newspaper Divaina, said the senior player was dropped from the squad after she refused to perform sexual favours.
Sri Lanka's women cricket team, which lost a four one-day match series by 1-3 to West Indies on Wednesday, is ranked sixth in the world in one-day international games after Australia, South Africa, West Indies, Pakistan, and England by the International Cricket Council.
