The YCCC Whistleblowing Hotline has to date received 161 Complaints.
Every Complainant has been contacted by the Sethi Investigation team.
Of the 54 Complaints falling within the Terms of Reference, 23 complaints are being actively investigated (the remaining 31 having been either resolved, redirected or voluntarily discontinued).
Of the Complaints falling within the Terms of Reference which are actively being investigated (save for two Complainants whose Complaints were received recently, and whom have been invited to interview) every single Complainant has now attended an investigation meeting with the Sethi Investigation Team.
The Investigation meetings with each of those Complainants clarified the Complaints and identified the further steps necessary to progress the Investigation, from which the Sethi Investigation Team made a series of requests for further information to YCCC. The Sethi Investigation is pleased to record that YCCC has cooperated with the Sethi Investigation’s requests for further information, including permitting a forensic IT search of its computer systems. All of the documents produced as a result of those searches have been reviewed in detail by the Sethi Investigation Team.
The Sethi Investigation is now predominantly engaged in conducting its remaining interviews with witnesses (i.e. persons other than the complainants) to the matters raised in the active Complaints, collating the evidence for the individual investigations, and has now commenced drafting final determinations for some of the active Complaints it is investigating. That work continues.
The outcomes of those Complaints will be notified to YCCC once finalised.
Anyone wishing to lodge a formal complaint about any form of discrimination that they have suffered as a result of any act or omission of the Club can do so using a dedicated email address: Yorkshireccc@whistleblowerhotline.co.uk.
