Former Lahore High Court (LHC) chief justice Malik Qayyum on Tuesday rejected the assertion of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani regarding his report on match-fixing, according to a media reports.
In an interview with local media, Justice (r) Qayyum said that the report compiled by him regarding the 1990s match-fixing allegations was not incomplete.
He said parts of the report were implemented as players like Saleem Malik, Wasim Akram and others faced bans and fines. However, at some point, the suggestions were neglected, he continued.
It is to be mentioned here that the justice had recommended imposing a lifetime ban on Saleem Malik and Atta-ur-Rehman as they were involved in match-fixing while he had also suggested removing Wasim Akram as captain of the team.
He had also urged to not give any duty to Mushtaq Ahmed in the board.
Earlier during a press conference, PCB chief Mani was questioned about the connection between inclusion of Wasim Akram in a committee formed to oversee the state of all aspects of Pakistan cricket and the report of Justice Qayyum.
In a response, Mani said, “Mr Qayuum made some allegations, then said he would provide details of the allegations later.”
“No one has ever seen those details since. Many people named in the report were acquitted thereafter and have gone on to coach around the world. Those countries who used these players services undertook complete inquiries but found nothing that perturbed them,” he added.
