Statement From ACP Owen Ellington


There is an ongoing murder investigation into the death of Mr. Robert Woolmer, coach of the Pakistan Cricket team. As a direct result, the security arrangements at the Pegasus Hotel will be part of that investigation. It is therefore inappropriate at this time to discuss these security arrangements.
However, security at official hotels connected with the ICC CWC 2007 is being continuously assessed and reviewed through a process supported by the intelligence community. We continue to maintain appropriate levels of security around teams, officials, media and sponsors.
Since the death of Mr. Woolmer on Sunday March 18, we have increased uniformed security presence at the hotel with a focus mainly on control.
