ARTICLE 6 - PUBLIC DISCLOSURE AND CONFIDENTIALITY

6.1 Save where a Suspension has been imposed, the BCCI shall not publicly identify any Participant who has been alleged to have committed an offence under this Anti-Corruption Code unless and until it has been determined in a hearing in accordance with Article 5 that an offence has been committed, or the right to such hearing has been waived, or the assertion of an offence has not been challenged on time. Once it is decided that an offence under this Anti-Corruption Code has been established, publication of that decision shall be determined in accordance with the following principles:

6.1.1 If the decision of the BCCI Disciplinary Committee is that an offence has been committed the decision may, at the discretion of the BCCI, be publicly reported in full as soon as possible.

6.2 The BCCI shall use its best endeavours to ensure that persons under its control do not publicly identify any Participant who is alleged to have committed an offence under this Anti-Corruption Code, unless and until a BCCI Disciplinary Committee has determined that an offence has been committed, and/or the offence has been admitted. However, the BCCI in its discretion may at any time disclose to other organisations such information as the BCCI may consider necessary or appropriate to facilitate administration or enforcement of the Anti-Corruption Code, provided that each organisation provides assurance satisfactory to the BCCI that the organisation will maintain all such information in confidence. The BCCI will not comment publicly on the specific facts of a pending case except in response to public comments made by (or on behalf of) the Participant involved in the case or his/her representatives.
