Five International Cricket Council (ICC) laptops, which contained vetting information, have been stolen from an accreditation centre in Christchurch.
Canterbury District Commander Superintendent Gary Knowles confirmed that the theft occurred at Hagley Netball Centre on Saturday night.
“ICC have advised that the laptops do not contain any personal information and there is no threat to security around the Cricket World Cup 2015 events,” Knowles was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz. “They contained no information that could breach security.
“They will not impact, in any way, here or Australia in terms of security. They are securely passworded. We would just like to get those back.
“Police are satisfied that the ICC has had sufficient security in place in the lead up to the Cricket World Cup launch tomorrow.”
