The tribunal dealing with match-fixing allegations in the Bangladesh Premier League 2 started the full hearing of the case in Gulshan yesterday.
The first-day's hearing, which lasted for more than six hours, saw representatives of all the accused -- Dhaka Gladiators players Mohammad Ashraful, Mosharraf Hossain, Mahbubul Alam, owners Selim Chowdhury and Shihab Chowdhury, the franchise's Indian CEO Gaurav Rawat and foreign players Kaushal Lokuarachchi of Sri Lanka and Englishman Darren Stevens -- except for Mohammad Rafique, attend the proceedings.
Englishman Stevens, who has been accused of failing to report a corrupt approach, was the only accused individual who was present in the hearing in person.
The three-member tribunal, which is conducting the hearing decided against briefing the media with regards to the happenings of the day. It instead issued a press release stating the need to maintain confidentiality.
"We are unable to answer any question except to say the hearing will continue on Tuesday morning," stated the press release.
Representatives of the individuals who later spoke to reporters stated that they had put forth their arguments and that the hearing was just in its initial stage.
