Our Correspondent July 08, 2014


The Supreme Court of Pakistan is set to hear three different cases related to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday.

The PCB and the Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) ministry will bring charges of alleged corruption and misuse of funds against former chairman Zaka Ashraf. Additionally, the cases pertaining to PCB’s sacked employees and Ashraf’s claims that PCB chairman Najam Sethi wrongfully assumed office in May, will also be heard.

“Imtiaz Siddiqui and Kasuri & Associates and Zaka Ashraf’s personal and company lawyers were paid Rs6 million from the PCB coffers — out of which, Rs5,225,000 will go to the former,” read an excerpt of the audit report that will be presented in court.

“This expenditure occurred despite the PCB having its own legal department as well as a legal advisor.

“In his 22 months as chairman, Ashraf spent a staggering Rs14.3 million on his travels alone — a steep rise from Ijaz Butt’s tenure.”
