As part of its regular communications, Yorkshire County Cricket Club today gives the following update.
The independent whistleblowing hotline became operational on Monday 15 November, and the club is committed to transparency regarding the volume of contact to the hotline.
Following its announcement on 22 November that 36 individuals had emailed the hotline in its first week, it has been confirmed that 12 emails were received in the week 22 November-28 November.
Mohinderpal Sethi QC of Littleton Chambers has been appointed to lead the independent investigation process to consider complaints that are lodged through the hotline, and all communications received are reviewed by Mr Sethi’s team which communicates directly with those who have made contact.
