Sri Lankan cricketer Danushka Gunathilaka who faces 4 counts of sexual assault in Australia and remains in custody has maintained his innocence of all charges, his lawyers said in a statement.
SANS Law, a Sydney-based law firm has been retained by Danushka Gunathilaka to appear on his behalf in court.
“Danushka Gunathilaka maintains his innocence of all charges. Given the early stages of proceedings, we do not wish to make any further comment and will allow for the matter to be properly ventilated before the Court,” the statement by his lawyers said.
Danushka Gunathilaka, 31, was arrested at the team’s hotel in Sydney’s CBD Sunday morning and charged with four counts of sexual assault.
It’s alleged he raped a woman from the city’s eastern suburbs the previous evening. He remains behind bars after a failed bail application earlier this week.
