A five-member disciplinary committee of Sri Lanka Cricket has concluded an investigation into an alleged sex scandal involving a woman employee of SLC and has established that no such act of any nature had occurred at the board's head office.
Reports had revealed last month that a woman hospitality manager and a foreign executive of an entertainment company which sponsored the Sri Lanka Premier League were caught in a compromising position inside the board's premises, by a security guard. A press release on Monday though said that the disciplinary committee report has not found 'a shred of evidence to remotely suggest that any such conduct or incident had taken place at SLC.'
'The Disciplinary Committee states that there is no proof of any misconduct on the part of any employee of SLC be it sexual in nature or otherwise; as such all publications pertaining to the alleged 'sex scandal' are absolutely false, unfounded and fabricated with malicious intent.'
Various media agencies in Sri Lanka had lambasted SLC for its inaction since the report was made public last month. A report in The Nation said that 'the woman in question is said to be in her mid-twenties and enjoys a 'whip hand' at SLC having served as Secretary to several executives including present CEO Nishantha Ranatunga and former world cup tournament Secretary Suraj Dandaniya.'

Questions were also raised regarding why the matter was not reported to the police.
SLC meanwhile in its most recent release to date has also said that it wished to place on record that it will be taking necessary measures to counter the baseless allegations given undue publicity by the Media.
