SLC says Galle CC has been paid the due funds

Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Mohan de Silva said that they have released the advance payments to all the clubs and that Galle CC will also get their payments. A letter too has been released to all the clubs to that effect.

“We actually decided to make the usual payments to Galle CC except the membership grant which has been held back until the disciplinary inquiry is over,” said De Silva.

“We pay about Rs. 11 million to the Tier B clubs out of that we are holding back Rs. 2.5 million which is given as a membership grant for member clubs,” he said.

“There are a lot of allegations against Gajaba Pitigala who has been involved in various wrong doings. There are two factions who are trading allegations against each other. They have written to the Sports Minister and the Ministry has requested us to conduct an initial inquiry. We have written to the club with regard to that and on the strength of the inquiry we will decide to make the remaining payment.

“Any party that is not happy with the findings of the inquiry can go and appeal to the Minister. We will appoint an independent committee to do an impartial inquiry,” De Silva said.
