Without having any evidence to prove, I do not point my finger at any person

By Chaturanga Samarawickrama   

Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Dullas Alahapperuma said yesterday he did not have any proof of match-fixing allegations made by former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage.   

 

Aluthgamage earlier charged that he doubt whether the 2011 World Cup final was fixed. Speaking at a media briefing at the Ministry yesterday, Minister Alahapperuma said that he asked the Sports Ministry Secretary, the Cricket Board and from the International Cricket Council (ICC) whether they had such information or conducting any investigation in this regard. “They said they have no such evidence with them,” the Minister said. “Therefore, without having any evidence to prove, I do not point my finger at any person.” “But this issue was publicized by the former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage. Even the former Sri Lanka’s skipper and parliamentarian Arjuna Ranatunga had raised a question in this regard, he said.

Therefore, it is our responsibility to investigate the statement made by former Sports Minister by the Anti-Corruption Unit of the International Cricket Council (ICC), which was formed after I was appointed as the Sports Minister, Minister Alahapperuma said. “This is a serious allegation, however, former Sports Minister may have some evidence to prove his statement but conducting an investigation in this regard is the responsibility of the Sports Minister,” he added.
