CA sets up amnesty period to report fixing suspicions

In a first of its kind initiative, Cricket Australia has decided to establish an amnesty period for its players to report corruption-related suspicions in an effort to weed out match fixing in the game and shady characters behind it. Cricketers face bans of up to five years if they are found to have failed to report information relating to a breach of CA’s anti-corruption code but in an Australian first have been told they will be spared from penalty if they come forward with any evidence from their careers by the end of November. The move comes as anti-corruption investigators prepare to confront the threat of match and spot fixing at next year’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, a report in ‘Sydney Morning Herald’ said.
