Kingston (Jamaica): (CMC) Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) president Wilford Heaven will appear before an ethics committee to answer charges of a code violation, West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron said.
Despite media reports last month stating that Heaven was to be summoned to answer charges of leaking a confidential document pertaining to the West Indies’ abandoned tour of India last year, the JCA boss denied any such matter was pending, reports CMC.
“I have been asked that question before. When it was first asked, I had not been given all the pivotal information. Just to say yes, there is a matter against Mr Heaven and the committee will meet shortly on the way forward,” Cameron said on Sunday.
The release of the information without the consent of the WICB is a breach of clause six of the WICB’s Code of Ethics for its board of directors.
Clause six of the WICB Code of Ethics for the board of directors refers to the way information should be treated by its members, including the dissemination of sensitive information, and the only instances where it is permitted.
