Sri Lanka women cricketers were compelled to perform sexual favours to stay in the team

The members of Sri Lanka women’s cricket team had been asked to have sex with officials if they wanted to earn or keep their places in the team.

The members of Sri Lanka women’s cricket team had been asked to have sex with officials if they wanted to earn or keep their places in the team.

Investigation had been launched last year in November and later the evidence of sexual assaultment was uncovered. The woman, who have been participating in the most popular sport of the island, became the victims of sexual harassment from the team management and officials selecting players.

The findings were submitted in a report to the sport ministry on Wednesday by a committee, which is headed by retired Supreme Court judge Nimal Dissanayake. The sport ministry in their turn announced a statement:

The committee report found evidence of sexual harassment by members of the Sri Lanka cricket women’s management team against several members of the Sri Lanka cricket women’s team.

There wasn’t any information in the statement about neither the exact evidence that had been found, nor disciplinary actions that would be taken nor which officials were involved.

Also, last year local media reported about unnamed female cricketer, who claimed that the officials had given her a choice whether to have sex with them or she would be dropped out of a team. She stated that such an incident wasn’t single and a lot of woman, who wanted to make the team, had faced to it.

Rosy Senanayake, the Sri Lankan Children’s Minister, called that incident shameful for their island.
