The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has arrested Piyal Nandana Dissanayake, the Chief Financial Officer of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), over an attempted financial fraud on television rights.
A team of CID officers visited the house of the Chief Financial Officer, this evening, and made the arrest.
The CID has also obtained several statements from the senior official over the same attempted financial fraud.
The SLC, in September, lodged a complaint with the Police 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 directives of Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapa to probe the matter.
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.
