SLC blames ‘hacker’ for attempted financial fraud at SLC

Heads of Sri Lanka Cricket are trying to insinuate that it was a hacker who had tried to transfer to a personal account a sum of 5.5 million US dollars due to the institution, reports say.

The money in question was due from a foreign television channel for the broadcasting rights of the series with England.

The SLC is yet to take disciplinary action against the main culprit, who is its head of finance.


CEO Ashley de Silva has instructed the SLC security allow the officer permission if he reported for work today (12).

The financial division has been sealed, but de Silva yesterday provided a table and a chair from the human resources division for the assistant to the head of finance.

Meanwhile, a former media secretary to the ex-sports minister, who also had served at Sumathi Group, has asked journalists to deny a claim by Mirror Games that former staffers of Sumathi Group were employed at the SLC’s financial division.
