ICC level charges against Marlon Samuels for breaching Anti-Corruption code

The former West Indies man is believed to have committed the offences during the Abu Dhabi T10 league

The International Cricket Council (ICC) have confirmed that they have charged former West Indies player Marlon Samuels with breaching four counts of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) Anti-Corruption Code. Samuels, who last represented the Windies in 2018, is said to have committed the offence at the Abu Dhabi T10 league, in which he was a part of the ‘Karnataka Tuskers’ squad in the 2019 edition which was won by the Dwayne Bravo-led Maratha Arabians side. 

The ICC have confirmed that Samuels has been charged with the breach of Article 2.4.2, Article 2.4.3, Article 2.4.6 and Article 2.4.7, which predominantly pertains to failure to disclose information to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official.

In a release, the council stated the following.

“A breach of Article 2.4.2 – Failing to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official, the receipt of any gift, payment, hospitality or other benefit that was made or given in circumstances that could bring the Participant or the sport of cricket into disrepute.

"A breach of Article 2.4.3 - Failing to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Official receipt of hospitality with a value of US $750 or more.

"Breaches of Article 2.4.6 – Failing to cooperate with the Designated Anti-Corruption Official’s investigation.

"Breaches of Article 2.4.7 – Obstructing or delaying the Designated Anti-Corruption Official’s investigation by concealing information that may have been relevant to the investigation.”

The 40-year-old has been provided two weeks to respond to the charges. 

“The ICC will not make any further comment in respect of these charges at this stage,” the council further added in the statement.
