Demonising Justin Gatlin
13th September 2015
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already initiated the process of preparing a comprehensive Code of Ethics in addition to already asked for “Conflict of Interest” Declarations.
“BCCI is concerned and determined to safeguard its integrity. The Code of Ethics when formed would define important core values for behaviour and conduct within the BCCI. It would be a good way of ensuring that administrators and officials refrain from anything that could be harmful to BCCI’s aims and objectives”, said BCCI President Mr. Jagmohan Dalmiya
“The code would describe the minimum requirements for conduct and behavioural expectations. To ensure transparency, BCCI would get the draft ethics code vetted and finalized by an eminent senior lawyer with impeccable credibility and reputation”, said Mr. Anurag Thakur, BCCI Secretary.
The BCCI has also decided to put a Player Agent Accreditation System in place.
“In order to make the structure thorough enough and to ensure that player agents are bound by the set of laws and the code of conduct, a thorough and extensive Player Agent Accreditation System would be in place soon”, said Mr. Dalmiya.
“Discussions and consultations involving all stakeholders would be held shortly in order to achieve a high degree of acceptance and to propose a new system that is transparent and easier to administer”, said Mr. Thakur.
Further details regarding the Code of Ethics and Agent Agreement will be discussed in the next working committee meeting of the BCCI.
