(Large Gifts, Corrupt Approaches and Other Information)
The obligations on this page are very important!
There are things Participants have to tell ESIC in the Anti-Corruption Code that could mean a Participant commits an offence under the Code if they fail to tell ESIC without delay.
Article 2.4.2 of the Code makes it an offence to fail to tell ESIC about any gift, payment, hospitality or other benefit, that the Participant knew or should have known was given to him/her to get you to do something wrong or that looks like it was given for that reason and might makes the Participant or the game or the league look bad.
Article 2.4.3 says a Participant must disclose all gifts (whether monetary or otherwise), hospitality and/or other non-contractual benefits offered to them if it is worth more than US$500.00 that aren’t from a spouse or a blood relative or an official part of an Event the Participant is participating in.
Article 2.4.4 says a Participant must disclose to ESIC full details of any approaches or invitations received by the Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code; and
Article 2.4.5 says a Participant must disclose to ESIC full details of any incident, fact, or matter that comes to the attention of the Participant that may evidence Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code by another Participant, including approaches or invitations that have been received by another Participant to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code. In other words, anything that you’ve seen or heard that indicates someone has or is trying to do something that is an offence under the Code.
NOTE: All Participants have a continuing obligation to report any new incident, fact, or matter that may evidence Corrupt Conduct to ESIC, even if the Participant’s prior knowledge has already been reported.
The following contact details go directly to the Integrity Commissioner and no-one else and are not accessible to third parties. Any reports made will be treated in the strictest confidence and will not be disclosed to anyone outside ESIC except in strict accordance with the Anti-Corruption Code and only when disclosure is deemed necessary to the proper investigation and/or prosecution or adjudication of a potential offence/s under the Code.
