Mathew to take fight to HC

Upset that he has not been given a fair hearing by V. Ramkumar, the former High Court judge and the Ombudsman for the Kerala Cricket Association, former KCA president T.C. Mathew plans to go the High Court seeking a fair trial.

Based on a report submitted by a four-member committee which had been constituted to probe into allegations of financial embezzlement by Mathew, the Ombudsman had ordered the former KCA head to repay Rs. 2.16 crore to the association.

Unfair verdict

In a media conference here on Friday, Mathew, also a former BCCI vice-president, alleged that the verdict was unfair since he had not been given a chance to offer his side of the story.

He also explained that the various allegations against him were false and biased. T.N. Ananthanarayanan, former KCA secretary, also attended the meeting.
