Johannesburg: South Africa's suspended cricket boss Gerald Majola was on Thursday found guilty of wrongfully receiving bonuses linked to international tournaments staged in 2009, officials said.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) spokesman Michael Owen-Smith confirmed to AFP that Majola had been found guilty by an independent probe panel, but did not give details.

An independent news agency Eye Witness News said the suspended chief executive was found guilty of all nine charges laid against him and linked to the 2009 Indian Premier League (IPL) and ICC Champions Trophy staged in South Africa.

Majola is accused of accepting 1.7 million rands (USD198,000) in bonuses that were not approved by the CSA board.

"He will know his fate on Friday. He shall be invited tomorrow (Thursday) to make representations on an appropriate sanction and thereafter a sanction will be given on Friday afternoon," CSA lawyer Nicholas Preston told the news agency.

Majola is accused of accepting 1.7 million rands ($198,000, 151,000 euros) in bonuses that were not approved by the CSA board.

The IPL tournament dates clashed with those of elections in India three years ago, raising security concerns and forcing the Twenty20 event to be switched to South Africa.
