Dubai, Mar 22: The two-day anti-corruption workshop coordinated by the ICC Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) and attended by the heads of eight of the 10 domestic anti-corruption units of the Full Members, and which was also attended by the ICC ACSU's Chairman Sir Ronnie Flanangan, concluded at the ICC Headquarters in Dubai on Thursday, an ICC media release said.
Reflecting on the workshop, ICC ACSU's General Manager Yogendra Pal Singh said: "It was an extremely useful two day workshop in which we developed relationships, shared a lot of information, discussed ideas and looked ahead to the future.
"Those individuals who are motivated to corrupt the sport of cricket know no geographical boundaries and only a coordinated approach at international and domestic level will achieve success in our ongoing fight to protect the integrity of the sport. With that in mind, positive discussions took place on how best to share information, address multi-jurisdictional threats, cooperate with one another in performing the necessary investigatory functions and ensure consistency of robust regulatory frameworks and effective education systems.
"There was great awareness amongst the group about the challenges the game is facing and different perspectives were shared on how to combat the menace of corruption. With the commitment and positive approach shown by the participants, I am confident that cricket as a whole is heading in the right direction in our fight against corruption and I would like to thank all the participants for engaging in the workshop with great enthusiasm.
"The sport of cricket collectively has a zero-tolerance towards corruption and we will do everything we can to protect the integrity of our Great Sport," he added.
