Lahore High Court issues notice to PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt over match fixing

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday issued a notice to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ijaz Butt in a case regarding the match-fixing allegations against the countrys cricketers.


Lahore, Aug 31: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday issued a notice to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ijaz Butt in a case regarding the 'match-fixing' allegations against the country's cricketers.

A petition has been filed by Chaudhry Ishtiaq Ahmad, a lawyer, requesting the court to initiate proceedings against the cricketers and Butt on charges of high treason under Article 6 of the constitution, an offence punishable by death in the country.

According to The Daily Times, the petitioner stated that by indulging in match fixing, the players had tarnished the image of the country.

"The players have seriously damaged the already-bad reputation of Pakistani players in the world of cricket and deserve severe punishment," the newspaper quoted Ahmad, as saying.

He insisted that all the accused players should be arrested on their return to Pakistan, and their properties should be seized.

Butt should also be included in the probe, the petitioner said.

The court adjourned the hearing of the case till September 7.

In the most sensational sporting scandal ever, it has been claimed that Pakistan fast bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif had delivered three no-balls to order.

According to The News of the World, London-based agent Mazhar Majeed is the alleged man behind the 150,000-pound betting scam.

The tabloid claims that they have footage of Majeed accepting money, and in return, he detailed what would happen and when on the field of play next day.

It also claims that Majeed had identified Pakistan captain Salman Butt as the ringleader.

He also named wicket keeper Kamran Akmal, and a total of seven corrupt cricketers.
