President, PM urged to intervene in Asif case

Thursday, June 19, 2008

The Senate committee for sports has appealed to President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to intervene for getting fast bowler Mohammad Asif released, who is under-arrest in Dubai.

The meeting of the Senate committee for sports was held under senator Zafar Iqbal Chaudhry here on Wednesday at the Parliament House.

The committee expressed concern on the issue of not getting Mohammad Asif released who is under-arrest in Dubai for many weeks and said that the country is getting a bad name due to this incident.

Senator Anwar Baig demanded a life ban on Asif whereas senator Haroon Khan asked for his immediate release.

Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Dr. Nasim Ashraf said that the board would itself investigate the case of Mohammad Asif and if his crime is proved he would be punished according to law.

He told that the PCB is making efforts for getting Asif freed through the Pakistan embassy in Dubai.

Expressing satisfaction on monetary details of the PCB, the committee decided to review on quarterly basis the PCB accounts and the performance of the national cricket team.
