India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I in Mumbai: CK Khanna ignores CoA’s request to part with complimentary passes

first_imgThe tension between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Committee of Administrators (COA) is out in the open again.The latest issue being distribution of complimentary passes for the third T20I between India and Sri Lanka at Mumbai.According to the BCCI rulebook, the president is entitled to 50 complimentary passes, including hospitality tickets, the secretary has 75 and the treasurer gets seven passes for matches.But the COA’s written letter few months back requested the acting president CK Khanna and acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary to part with 25 complimentary passes each for the stakeholders during every international match. The problem has now come in the forefront as all the stakeholders, from sponsors to official broadcasters, have been allocated their share of complimentary passes for the India-Sri Lanka T20 in Mumbai.However, few people in the BCCI have raised questions regarding who these unnamed stakeholders are for whom the COA are asking for passes. Some BCCI officials were aggrieved that acting president Khanna had collected his 50 passes for the Mumbai T20 game without parting with his share of 25 passes that he was ordered to give back for the “unnamed stakeholders”.Once he refused, one among the three most influential officials in the BCCI at the moment, threatened to “block those tickets” in possession of Khanna and even asked the Mumbai Cricket Association to do so. MCA, on its part, informed that it can’t block premium tickets and reprint them at such a short notice.”If the rulebook is strictly followed, Khanna can’t be faulted for collecting his entire share of passes. The COA letter specifically says ‘request’ and any office-bearer is well within his rights to decline such a request,” a senior official, who is aware of the rules, said on condition of anonymity.advertisementTitle Sponsors PayTm gets 50 passes (25 hospitality and 25 next best category). Among official Partners — Hyundai is allocated 30 (10 Hospitality), Pepsico gets 40 (20 Hospitality) and Jana Bank gets 15 (5 Hospitality) passes each.Team Sponsors Oppo Mobiles gets 50 with half of them being Hospitality passes. Broadcasters Star India gets 74 passes (24 Hospitality) while Kit Sponsors Nike gets only 25 Hospitality passes. Apart from them, former Test cricketers, residing at the venue of the matches, get two passes while the home team and the visiting team get 125 passes each and 25 more hospitality passes for spouses and VIP guests of players. The BCCI production team and panel umpires also get their share of complementaries.This is where a section of BCCI officials are raising questions alleging that COA is trying to arm-twist some of the office-bearers to part with a share of their passes. “If every stakeholders’ share is specified then why are the office-bearers being told to part with their share of passes? All we want to know is that who are these stakeholders. Their names are not minuted and the General Body is not aware of them,” the official raised some pertinent questions.Calls and text messages to COA member Diana Edulji went unanswered.(With inputs from PTI)last_img read more

NYK Fined for Criminal Cartel Conduct in Australia

first_imgzoom The Australian Federal Court has convicted Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) of criminal cartel conduct and ordered it to pay a fine of AUD 25 million (around USD 20 million). However, without the NYK’s cooperation on the matter, the fine would have been even bigger, ACCC said.As informed, this is the second-highest imposed in Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) history.The judgment also marks the first successful prosecution under the criminal cartel provisions of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (CCA).Following an extensive investigation by the ACCC, the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) charged NYK with giving effect to cartel provisions in an arrangement or understanding with other shipping lines relating to the transportation of motor vehicles to Australia between 2009 and 2012.The cartel operated from at least February 1997 and affected vehicles transported to Australia by NYK and other shipping lines from locations in Asia, the US and Europe on behalf of major car manufacturers including Nissan, Suzuki, Honda, Toyota and Mazda.“The Australian community relies heavily on imported vehicles, so a longstanding cartel in relation to the transportation of those vehicles to Australia was of significant concern,” Rod Sims, ACCC Chairman, said.“The NYK fine is also the second largest ever imposed under the Competition and Consumer Act, and incorporated a significant discount for NYK’s plea and cooperation,” Sims added.Justice Wigney stated the fine “incorporates a global discount of 50% for NYK’s early plea of guilty and past and future assistance and cooperation, together with the contrition inherent in the early plea and cooperation: meaning that but for the early plea and past and future cooperation, the fine would have been AUD 50 million”.In this case, the maximum penalty was calculated on the basis of 10 per cent of NYK’s annual turnover in connection with Australia, in the 12 months prior to the commencement of the offense. On that basis, NYK’s conduct attracted a maximum penalty of AUD 100 million.“The sentence imposed on NYK by the Federal Court today sends a strong warning to the industry and the business community at large. The CDPP and ACCC can and will criminally prosecute cartel conduct.  It also highlights that parties who engage early and cooperate with the authorities may be shown leniency,” Sims explained.As World Maritime News previously reported, NYK entered a guilty plea on July 18, 2016, in the Federal Court. NYK was sentenced for one “rolled-up” criminal charge of giving effect to cartel provisions.On November 2, 2016, the CDPP laid charges against another alleged participant in the cartel, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), NYK’s compatriot shipping firm. The ACCC’s investigation in relation to other alleged cartel participants is continuing.NYK is headquartered in Tokyo and has a controlling interest in a global group of companies with offices in Europe, Africa, East Asia, South Asia, China, Oceania and the North and South Americas. It also operates an Australian subsidiary, NYK Line (Australia).last_img read more
