Temporary staff forced to remove pants to be compensated

The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board said that temporary ground staff who were forced to remove their pants following the cricket match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Sooriyawewa, will be compensated.

A statement by the Sri Lanka Cricket board said that the President and Executive Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket are perturbed by the reported incident that had occurred with the causal workers engaged as ground laborers at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Sooriyawewa last evening (11th).

An inquiry has been initiated into the matter and whilst stern action will be taken against those responsible, Sri Lanka Cricket said it wishes to apologize to those subjected to this ignominy, and will take steps to ensure they are compensated. (Colombo Gazette)
