ICC to implement rules against inappropriate behaviour and sexual harassment
In the wake of recent cases of sexual harassment coming to light around the world in various walks of life, the International Cricket Council (ICC), according to a report in The Hindu, is all set to implement strict rules and regulations, called 'Safeguarding Policy and Guidelines', to deal with the said offence. The issue will be discussed at its quarterly meeting in Singapore beginning Wednesday.
The topic is expected to be high on the agenda with behaviour such as (a) Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional or otherwise) of children or adults at risk, (b) Abuse (sexual, physical, emotional or otherwise) of adults not at risk, (c) Harassment of children or adults at risk, (d) Harassment of adults not at risk, (e) Indecency (exposing themselves to someone else), bullying, victimisation, unwanted physical contact, stalking, offensive comments, jokes or body language, publishing, circulating or displaying pornographic, sexually suggestive or otherwise offensive material or pictures being specifically pointed out.
