Ram Slam: Louis Cole testifies to an SJN hearing after several players have been banned due to a scandal. According to Louis Cole, who led the investigation. There was no racism in the investigation. And sanctions of seven South African players for the plot to regulate the game at Ramslam 16 in 2015.
Cole testified at a CSA Social Justice and NationBuilding (SJN). Hearing in response to Alviro Petersen, Ethy Mbhalati, Lonwabo Tsotsobe. And Thami Tsolekile, who agreed to a 212-year ban on roles in the Fixing scandal.
They told SJN that they were targeting for their race.
Ram Slam: Cole denied this with details of an attempt to regulate the game. And of negotiations in amounts ranging from R 30,000 ($ 2,000) to R 1,000,000 ($ 68,000). After being adopt by Gulam Bodi.
“The allegations that the players made before the SJN. Based on the evidence that we uncovered and that I presented today. In my opinion, is a misrepresentation of the facts,” Cole said. “It is very unfortunate that they would have used this platform of the SJN. Which I feel is very important for cricket in South Africa, and also for players.”As the ombudsman has alluded to, the terms of reference were to investigate discrimination against players within the game. For these players to use this platform. Which could have been using to investigate and deal with players who had genuinely been discriminates against, is very unfortunate. We investigated this over a period of 20 months, where it really took its toll. I think that is very unfair.
Last year, Tsolekile and Petersen made similar claims on national radio broadcasts. As a result, the CSA has announced that it is willing to re-investigate if gamers are racist during the investigation.
The call, which lastly four hours of testimony, said there was no discrimination. And the investigation was conducting in accordance with both the ICC anti-corruption guidelines and the South African criminal investigation process.
The other three players involved, Bodi, Pumi Matshikwe, and Jean Symes, did not appear in SJN.
In 2019, Body was sentences to five years’ imprisonment under the Anti-Corruption. And Combat Anti-Corruption Act, but Cymes appeared in front of South African criminal force Hawks and approached Matoshikwe.
“At the moment, I am talking about the definites. It’s me and Lopsy,” Tsolekile is heard saying in the video. “And Pumi. Symes is in, but I don’t think he is going to play. If Pumi is fit he will play.”
