SL Customs carrying out investigations into SLC

The Customs Department is currently conducting an investigation into the under-invoicing of values of three LED screens imported by the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) at three international cricket stadiums in Sri Lanka, State Minister of Finance Shehan Semasinghe told Parliament today.

State Minister Semasinghe said this when Opposition Leader  Sajith Premadasa revealed that the invoiced value of the three screens bought for Premadasa, Dambulla and Pallakele stadiums have been valued at Rs 6.5 million though the real value has been Rs. 360,000.

Corruption has plagued Sri Lanka's cricket administration since the country's 1996 World Cup win, which turned out to be a "curse" in disguise, then-captain Arjuna Ranatunga's younger brother said.

Urban development minister Prasanna Ranatunga said "massive financial fraud" continued to vex the island nation's cricket board and called for reforms."The World Cup victory was the biggest curse for our cricket," Ranatunga said.
