The YCCC Whistleblowing Hotline has to date received 235 Complaints

Every Complainant has been contacted by the Sethi Investigation team.

There has been a steady stream of further Complaints received via the Whistleblowing Hotline since our June update, some of which relate to Headingley’s hosting of the Ashes Test in early July. Whereas the majority of the recently-received Complaints fall outside the Sethi Investigation’s Terms of Reference, some Complaints fall within the Terms of Reference and merit further investigation.

In respect of those recently-received Complaints falling (or potentially falling) within the Terms of Reference, those investigations are underway, with investigation meetings having taken place or imminently due to take place.

Of the Complaints falling within the Terms of Reference which have been actively investigated (save for those few Complainants whose Complaints were received recently, and for whom the Sethi Investigation is in the process of arranging forthcoming interviews) every single Complainant and all relevant witnesses have now attended an investigation meeting with the Sethi Investigation Team.

Many Complaints have now been decided and the Sethi Investigation is nearing completion of its final reports in relation to those Complaints. That work continues. The outcomes of those Complaints will be notified to YCCC once finalised.

The Sethi Investigation team has now begun its work in respect of the next phase of the Investigation, namely the production of a Report for the YCCC Board containing the findings, conclusions and recommendations arising out of our Investigation. This work will (amongst other things) involve the arranging of further interviews with YCCC Staff and Board Members, focused not only on the issues arising from and the lessons learned from individual Complaints, but also on the work that the Club has undertaken since the Sethi Investigation was appointed so as to inform the efficacy of recommendations that will be made. We anticipate making requests for further interviews later this month, with a view to convening such interviews as soon as possible thereafter.
