Sri Lanka Cricket has lodged a complaint with the FCID (Financial Crime Investigation Division) following an attempt by a senior official to transfer US$ 5.5 million, connected to broadcasting rights of the England tour, to an offshore account.

SLC said CEO Ashley De Silva lodged the complaint under the direction of Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapa to probe the attempted fraud.

The SLC said it was able to avoid the fraudulent attempt to transfer US$ 5.5 million of SLC’s Media Rights Sponsorship funds, which was due from an International Media Network; to an offshore account.

Sources said  that the high ranking employee in question has asked the International Media Network to transfer the money to the offshore account. However the local agent of the said media network had informed SLC CEO regarding the attempted fruedalent activity.
 
The SLC said the fraudulent act was found, before it was executed through bogus means.
 
SLC has also decided to launch an audit inquiry into all the financial transactions, conducted during the past one year period.
