Sri Lanka's sports minister today said he suspected an “inside job” over the disappearance of crucial financial data relating to the World Cup co-hosted by the island.

“It has to be an inside job. A robot didn't come and steal the hard disks,” Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage told reporters a day after police launched an investigation into an alleged break-in.

He said the police Criminal Investigations Department had begun investigations and taken finger prints after the weekend theft was discovered on Monday.

“Sri Lanka Cricket had backed up the data and we don't need to worry about losing the information,” the minister said.

Local media reported that some papers related to the 2011 World Cup, including audited documents were among the material that had gone missing with the computer hard disks.

    No they are talking like they are from JVP or UNP. Same like Katunayake incident. Guess what will happen at Commonwealth games.

    This is also Kind of game and play- so under sport ministry. Goverment must define some games to handle by the minister.

    The Minister of Sports should resign over this shameful situation.

    SLC is a place multi- million dollars are involved. A den of thieves are ruling. The culprits must be the shadows of the top officials.

    Amare Wednesday, 15 June 2011 06:15 AM

    Upali Wednesday, 15 June 2011 07:01 AM

    Do not expect that even in your wildest dreams.....
    This is Sri -Lanka and Nawalapitiya people do not wanna another war zone in their electorate so soon.

    Paul Wednesday, 15 June 2011 06:57 AM

    These document must have certainly been under some official's custody.So it is not so difficult for the Minister to catch the thief,You just have to question the relevant individual.Why beating about the bush?

    Ceylonese Wednesday, 15 June 2011 07:04 AM

    Don't worry. Buy a new hard disk. It's that simple.

    I Hussein Wednesday, 15 June 2011 08:10 AM

    and add some data, make it normal so the people in this country believe what you say and forget everything the next day. Hence you cover the culprits and and keep the public happy.
