Cape Town - Cricket South Africa's (CSA) Anti-Corruption and Security Unit has made progress in its ongoing investigation and has charged a perpetrator, operating as an intermediary, under its Anti-Corruption Code.

The intermediary has been charged with contriving to fix, or otherwise improperly influence aspects of the 2015 RAM SLAM T20 Challenge Series and with failing or refusing, without compelling justification, to co-operate with an investigation carried out by CSA's Designated Anti-Corruption Official.

The intermediary, who has been provisionally suspended under Article 4.7.1 of the Code, will now be required to respond to the charges via CSA’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit.

The provisional suspension means that the intermediary may not be involved in any capacity in any match or any other kind of function, event or activity (other than authorized anti-corruption education or rehabilitation programmes) that is authorized, organized, sanctioned, recognized or supported in any way by CSA, the ICC, a National Cricket Federation or any member of a National Cricket Federation.

CSA, as is the case with all the other international cricket Boards, is a signatory to the “Keep Cricket Clean” vision of the ICC which envisages the provision of a co-ordinated and effective world-wide capability to protect all cricket played under its auspices.

“Our attitude to corruption will always be one of zero tolerance and we are confident that we have the necessary structures in place to effectively deal with any corrupt activity,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

“We will relentlessly pursue under our Code and the law of the land any persons we believe to be involved in corrupting the game and, with assistance from the Police, we will also seek criminal prosecution,” added Mr. Lorgat.
