'BCCI ombudsman will have complete freedom'
Friday 27 November 2015

According to a report in the Hindu, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Shashank Manohar has promised complete investigative power to its ombudsman Justice A P Shah, appointed to deal with conflict of interest and other charges of misconduct against board administrators.

"Even with regard to the administrator, the enquiry (should there be complaints of indiscipline, misconduct against him) would be conducted by the ombudsman," Manohar told the Hindu.

However, to punish an administrator, the ombudsman would be required to submit his report to the board, as an intermediary cannot remove a board member.

"He will submit his report. Because the administrator is a board member, he cannot be removed by the ombudsman. So the Board has to take a call and I don't think when the ombudsman gives a report holding a person guilty, the board would say that 'No, no, he's not guilty.' He will have the last word in conflict of interest issues, but with regard to the administrator, he will submit a report."
