UK cops recover tainted 15K pounds from Butt's hotel room

British police have found between 10,000 pounds and 15,000 pounds in cash in team captain Salman Butts hotel room, which they are claiming was part of the 150,000 pounds handed to cricket fixer Mazhar Majeed by a News of the World undercover team last week.


London, Sep.5 : British police have found between 10,000 pounds and 15,000 pounds in cash in team captain Salman Butt's hotel room, which they are claiming was part of the 150,000 pounds handed to cricket fixer Mazhar Majeed by a News of the World undercover team last week.

Smaller amounts were recovered from the rooms of Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif - who between them bowled three pre-arranged no-balls ordered by Majeed in the Lord's Test against England.

According to the NOTW, the cops are also trying to track down Swiss bank accounts Majeed claimed he opened for players to hide match-rigging money.

In the wake of the expose which rocked the sport, police armed with warrants swooped on the Pakistan team's hotel - the Marriot in Swiss Cottage, North London - and searched the rooms of Butt, Amir and Asif.

Officers even examined the changing room at Lord's used by the Pakistan team.

A source close to the investigation told us: "Not all the money has been recovered. The cash seized is not a life-changing sum. It is more like pocket money for the players. Work is now going on to find out where the rest of the money has gone."

Officers from Scotland Yard's Economic Specialist Crime team are looking closely at 35-year-old Majeed's claims that he secreted thousands of pounds in secret offshore accounts and laundered money through his football club, Croydon Athletic FC.

During a press conference at Lord's this week, ICC anti-corruption chief Sir Ronnie Flanagan said: "The conclusion that we have come to is that there is a really arguable case to answer."
