Sreesanth and Chavan are out on bail, while Chandila
is in jail awaiting trial.
Two other Rajasthan players---Sidharth Trivedi and
Harmeet Singh have also been questioned by police.
Meiyappan, who is the son-in-law of BCCI president
Narainswamy Srinivasan, spent nearly two weeks in
jail after he was accused of spot-fixing, while Kundra
admitted only to betting and was never arrested.
Srinivasan, who is the managing director of the
India Cements company that owns the Chennai Super
Kings, was forced to step aside pending the investi-

president in the interim.

Certificate for Financial Advisors (Cert. FA):
Mr. Barrie Attzs,
Securities Specialization Graduate.
Graduating Class of 2012
Barrie Attzs, now a consultant in the Corporate Commercial Department of J.D.
Sellier + Co, Trinidad, is a graduate of King's College London University School of
Law, wherein he obtained his LL.B. with Upper Second Class Honours.
He subsequently attended law school in Canada and maintained a first class
average in order to obtain the Certificate of Qualification, which is the equivalent to
a Canadian law degree. He consults in the areas of tax, corporate and commercial
law and litigation and has been highly successful in his field.
In spite of his extensive knowledge in the field of tax and commercial transactions
(including corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, new business ventures,
private equity transactions and project finance) Barrie felt something was lacking
in his practice. He wanted to supplement his legal experience with education and
training specific to the financial services industry in order to better serve his clients.
He said "I sought to merge my interest in tax and finance with an appropriate
course of study. I researched the syllabus of various programmes and was
interested in something that would give me a sound grounding in the
financial services industry, but also enable me to work full time."
He consulted with Karrian Hepburn, General Manager of Scotia Investments and
Director with the Securities Dealers Association of Trinidad and Tobago, who
advised that the Institute of Banking and Finance of Trinidad and Tobago (IBAF)
provided one such option in the educational sphere with the Certificate for
Financial Advisors Programme, more commonly known as Cert. FA.
Cert. FA is a self-study programme geared to equip financial professionals with the skill set to provide sound financial advice to clients on
products and services and also offer specialization in the areas of banking, securities and mutual funds. This programme is grounded in the
laws and taxes of Trinidad and Tobago, and is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Trinidad and Tobago.
Barrie was sold and enrolled in 2011 at IBF for the Cert. FA programme with a specialization in Securities. In terms of applicability of the
programme content to his business Barrie stated "I found the course to be exactly what I needed. It is highly relevant to my practice, and
the changing Securities industry in Trinidad. It has increased my ability to understand the business context of my clients"
The rest is history. Barrie Attzs was one of the graduands in the Graduating Class of 2012 Ceremony, held on June 15th2013, at the Central
Bank Auditorium where he achieved a Certificate for Financial Advisors specializing in the securities field.
The Institute of Banking and Finance is indeed proud to have Barrie's name in the institute's records as a member in good and
MUMBAI---An Indian court yesterday said
the spot-fixing allegations from this year s
Indian Premier League should be reinves-
tigated after declaring that a panel set up
by the Board of Control for Cricket in India
was "illegal and unconstitutional." The
panel had cleared two teams and its offi-
cials of the charges.
"The entire incident needs to be rein-
vestigated," the Bombay High Court said in
its order after the Cricket Association of
Bihar filed a case against the BCCI. "There
was disparity in the evidence collected by
the probe panel."
The order effectively strikes down the
panel s report clearing Chennai Super Kings
team principal Gurunath Meiyappan and
Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra of
betting and keeping in touch with illegal
bookmakers during the IPL.
The report was to be discussed at an IPL
governing council meeting on Friday when
the teams and officials were expected to be
formally cleared of the charges.
Former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale
was originally the third member of the panel
but his resignation after the spot-fixing
controversy reduced the number to two.
The spot-fixing controversy arose after
the arrest of Rajasthan Royals players Shan-
takumaran Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and
Ankeet Chavan by Delhi Police, who claimed
they had proof that the players had conceded
more than a specified number of runs per
over in return for money from illegal book-
Delhi Police on Tuesday named all three
players in a charge-sheet filed in a court
that named a total of 39 persons. The list
includes alleged underworld don Dawood
Ibrahim and his aide Chhota Shakeel, who
the police claim have been operating the
spot-fixing racket from outside India.
All the accused have been charged with
