Pakistan’s cricket is facing some serious kind of legal battle between Former Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, Najam Sethi and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Earlier PCB responded to the legal notice of Sethi and denied all allegations. But it seems that PCB’s relply has failed to satisfy Mr. sethi, and he issued another legal notice to the PCB, demanding apology for releasing distorting facts and figures.
The second legal notice concluded that, “In the light of the foregoing we reiterate our demand that the PCB and Mr. Ehsan Mani apologise to Mr Najam Sethi for this blatantly malicious attack on him. It is not in dispute that the figures published by the PCB are misleading and incorrect. The reply claims that this disclosure was motivated solely by PCB’s transparency and accountability policy but no such policy has been actually produced or referred to the reply. The reply also fails to enumerate any single instance where any comparable disclosure has been made by the PCB in the past. And the reply further fails to disclosure has been made by the PCB in the past. And the reply further fails to disclose any rational reason why the chart focuses almost exclusively on the expenses of Mr Sethi”.
Meanwhile, while giving reply to PCB’s responses, the legal notice states, “As of Aug 20, 2018, no such “transparency and accountability policy” relating to expenses and benefits of members of the PCB Board of Governors, Chairman of the PCB or heads of committees set up by the BoG had been approved by the Board of the PCB.
