World Twenty20 security documents missing in Sri Lanka
By Staff Writers | May 25, 2012
Documents belonging to Shane Dullewa, the ICC-appointed security consultant for the ICC World Twenty20 2012 in Sri Lanka, have reportedly been stolen from the cricket board's headquarters in Colombo.
An unnamed official told Sri Lanka's Daily Mirror newspaper an inquiry would be launched, as the loss of the documents "was a serious issue."
However, police officials from the local precinct told the Mirror that Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) was yet to file a complaint.
Dullewa was said to be in Australia on a personal visit when the documents went missing from his office. It was also reported earlier this month that the security consultant was on the verge of being replaced.
In June last year, two computer hard-drives containing financial reports were stolen from SLC premises. No arrests have yet been made in relation to that theft.
The ICC World Twenty20 2012 starts on September 18, with the hosts Sri Lanka taking on Zimbabwe in Hambantota.
