A week after the BCCI announced a three-member panel to probe the spot fixing and match fixing charges in the IPL, retired Madras High Court judge Justice T Jarayama Chouta has not yet received any communication from the cricket body other than a letter appointing him as one of the probe panel members.
Speaking to Express, Justice Chouta said that he saw the letter delivered at his Bangalore residence on May 31.
It is signed by Prof Ratnakar Shetty, BCCI General Manager (Game Development).
“Nothing has been communicated to me, including terms of reference and remuneration,” he said.
Asked whether he or other members of the commission have asked the BCCI to pass a resolution appointing them as investigating panel members, he said: “We have not asked for it. It is for the BCCI to decide on this.”
Again there is no communication as to who will provide the administrative and legal aid to the panel.
“Absolutely there is no communication on this,” the justice said. Asked from where the commission will operate, Justice Chouta said that it is for the commission to decide.
