    Anti-Corruption Tribunal reserves judgement on Nasir Jamshed spot-fixing case [Post #18]

    KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has failed to wrap up the infamous spot-fixing scandal from the Pakistan Super League second season despite spending hundreds of thousands of rupees on it from its funds, per Daily Express.

    During the sophomore season of its prized T20 league this year, Pakistan cricket once again faced a moment of infamy when it occurred that several of its cricketers were embroiled in a fresh spot-fixing scandal.

    The board at that time reacted immediately, suspending Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif before adding some other names to the list, but it has failed to conclude the matter despite several months having passed by.

    Meanwhile, the three-member tribunal, headed by Justice (R) Asghar Haider and formed to probe the case, has continued to conduct the hearings.

    Haider, and the two other members of the said tribunal — former PCB Chairman Lt Gen (R) Tauqir Zia and ex-Test cricketer Waseem Bari — are each paid Rs25,000 per day for their sources, per sources.

    According to a modest estimate, the tribunal conducted 29 hearings between May 15 and July 18, totaling to Rs2.1m in payments made to the tribunal members alone, which does not include the legal cost.

    Hence, after tarnishing the board’s reputation once, the spot-fixing case continues to bleed the PCB.

    Well, now we know why the case is taking this long for a judgement to come out of it.

    The PCB needs to pull its act together, this is pathetic. It didn't take 2010 spot fixing fiasco this long to be adjudicated.

    Of course this is the reason. We're waiting for a verdict while others are waiting until their wagons are loaded with cash.

    Lawyer objects to tribunal members drawing salary

    LAHORE: Showing no trust on the anti-corruption tribunal, hearing a spot-fixing case against four Pakistani cricketers, lawyer of accused cricketer Nasir Jamshed said he had reservations over the Code of Conducts of the tribunal and its members for withdrawing salary from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    Talking to reporters on Thursday after the hearing of Nasir’s case was deferred to Tuesday (Aug 22), lawyer Hassan Warraich said that main reservation was that all members of the tribunal were withdrawing salary from the PCB for their work and furthermore he had raised objections over the Code of Conducts.

    Hassan challenged the PCB to come out in the media with all witnesses against his client. The lawyer said he knew it very well what would be the verdict of the tribunal against Nasir.

    Nasir is unable to travel to Pakistan from London because National Crime Agency of England had seized his passport after the spot-fixing case surfaced during the Pakistan Super League earlier this year.

    Meanwhile, PCB lawyer Taffazul Rizvi said that Nasir’s lawyer was using delaying tactics in the case. He said Hassan wanted to cross-examine two witnesses of the PCB, but only one was available, so he (Nasir lawyer) was not ready to cross-examine the solitary witness.

    Asked Hassan had raised reservations over the Code of Conducts, the PCB lawyer said if they had any objection they should go to the court.

    But he added that on one hand they were not accepting the Code of Conduct, while on the other they were also appearing before the tribunal.

    He said the cricketers were dear to the PCB and the board doesn’t want to defame any player on purpose, before adding when a cricketer caught in a wrong practice he must be penalised.

    Not defending the tribunal, and I know for most Pakistanis that's a decent amount of money, but is it really that much for an ex judge and army officer?

    Unless of course they are making more money

    If that's the case, that calls into question pretty much every court/tribunal decision ever made.

    Thing is - we have PCB making a tribunal which is on their payroll to judge someone they accuse of doing wrong. So the players have a right to question this.

    Fact is PCB had established internal procedures (just like any other cricket board) and that is what they are following.

    Like I said, if we follow your logic to its natural conclusion you can bring into question pretty much every decision ever made. The mere fact that you are being paid by a body (in accordance with usual practice) does not mean that the independence (and the personal integrity) of the tribunal is in doubt.

    There is no evidence that the PCB has put any pressure on the tribunal and until any such evidence materialises there is no merit in accusing the tribunal of having a bias.

    LAHORE: The Anti-corruption Tribunal of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reserved its decision in the case of cricketer Nasir Jamshed, who was allegedly involved in the spot-fixing scam that erupted during the second Pakistan Super League (PSL) held in the UAE earlier this year.

    Nasir did not appear before the tribunal since he is being interrogated by England’s National Crime Agency, which has also seized his passport, in the same case.

    Nasir’s lawyer Hasan Waraich pleaded his case with Nasir only facing the charge of being non-cooperator with the PCB in the case. Once he appears before the tribunal, he may face more charges. The tribunal will announce its decision in the next 30 days.

    Waraich told media that he had given his final arguments in the case and claimed that in PCB documents, the man named Yousuf Anwar was not mentioned as a bookie.

    PCB’s lawyer Taffazul Rizvi however rebutted Waraich’s claim and and said he had all evidences to prove Yousaf as a bookie. The lawyer said he gave his arguments over Nasir’s non-cooperation with the PCB.

    Apart from Nasir, four other cricketers namely Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif, Shahzaib Hasan and Mohammad Irfan were implicated in the spot-fixing case.
