Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said all three officials were shown the door at the end of their contracts last month after an internal inquiry found two of them guilty of sexual harassment and a third of improper conduct.
     
The board said in a statement that "there was no evidence of any physical intimacy" by any of the three men, none of whom have been named.
     
But the investigation had nevertheless determined that "there have been a few incidents of sexual harassment which were committed by two male officials" and that the third was guilty of "improper conduct... which did not amount to sexual harassment," the SLC added.
     
Sri Lanka's sports ministry said at the weekend that criminal prosecutions would follow after its own inquiry had found two team managers demanded sexual favours from team members.
     
Under Sri Lankan law, anyone found guilty of sexual harassment can face up to five years in prison plus an unspecified fine. The board said both its own report and the separate inquiry by the sports ministry had highlighted the "unsatisfactory situation" involving the women's team where there was "favouritism and bias".
