Doha: The chairman of the independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal Mr. Michael Beloff, QC, issued an statement to the media at the end of six day hearing of the Pakistani trio. As expected the decision is again postponed or can say delayed till February 05, 2011.

 

 

Lets start from the statement of Mr. Michael Beloff:

“The tribunal has been constituted to determine charges against Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif brought under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code in relation to two Test matches played during August 2010 in the series between Pakistan and England, The Oval Test and the Lord’s Test.

“For the purposes of the hearing, the tribunal has been provided with eight volumes of written evidence and legal materials.

“The hearing itself has lasted more than 45 hours spread over six days during which the tribunal has heard oral and written testimonies and tapes, watched video recordings and listened to forensic submissions.

“Counsel for all parties have acknowledged that they have had a fair opportunity to present their respective cases.

“The ICC has withdrawn all charges against the three players in relation to The Oval Test except for one against Mr Butt.

“The tribunal has formally acquitted the players in respect of the charges which have been withdrawn. The other charges which include all those relating to the Lord’s Test remain for consideration.

“The tribunal has throughout been very conscious of the importance of these proceedings to three players and to the wider world of cricket.

“Representations have been made to the tribunal to reserve any decision on the remaining charges until it has had sufficient time to give the issue the most careful consideration and until it is able, at the same time as handing down its decision, to provide written reasons. This was not feasible within the timetable agreed for this hearing in Doha.

“The tribunal has, therefore, determined to continue its deliberations and will hold a further hearing in Doha on 5 February 2011 at which its decisions will be handed down to the parties, and any consequential matters will be dealt with.

“Until that date, all the three players will remain suspended from all cricketing activities.”

Main points of the statement:

  • The ICC has withdrawn all charges against the three players in relation to The Oval Test except for one against Mr Butt.
  • The tribunal has formally acquitted the players in respect of the charges which have been withdrawn. The other charges which include all those relating to The Lord’s Test remain for consideration.
  • Representations have been made to the tribunal to reserve any decision on the remaining charges until it has had sufficient time to give the issue the most careful consideration and until it is able, at the same time as handing down its decision, to provide written reasons.
  • The tribunal has, therefore, determined to continue its deliberations and will hold a further hearing in Doha on 5 February 2011 at which its decisions will be handed down to the parties, and any consequential matters will be dealt with.
  • Until that date, all the three players will remain suspended from all cricketing activities.

Now it means that ICC is also investigating the Oval Test (Aug 18-21, 2010) which was ended in a 4 wicket win for Pakistan. As the News Of The World also said that there was also a deal about the Oval Test but wasn’t completed. Salman Butt played a maiden over in that test which was so called predicted by Mazhar in front of the NOTW agent. That’s why Mr. Butt is also in involved in that case.

The cases against Mohammad Amir & Mohammad Asif about Oval Test are withdrawn by ICC.

The independent tribunal still need time to focus on the case. Now that is strange that everything is in front of them & they need time, the ICC Chief executive said early that the evidences are very strong. So can we say that after the hearing the evidences become week???

I agree with the one line of this statement that the lawyers of the Pakistani trio asked them to give written reasons, now these written reasons need 25 days???

And then he said this was impossible in the time frame agreed for the hearing in Doha. Then why they decided this time frame? May be to waste some more time…

Further he said that the tribunal will continue its deliberations. Again the same question, this all can be decided in 5-10 days as there are only three members.

So, on February 05, 2011, they will hold further hearing. What this mean? As the decision & the paper work will be completed before Feb. 05, they why hearing? He could say the results or just hearing. The use of ‘Further hearing’ confused the world of cricket.

In the end all these players will be suspended from all cricketing activities till the judgement date. Why cricketing activities? Now even they can’t play cricket in their house or with their friends & family members??? Are they proved guilty???

Main Reason:

In short, the complete statement of Mr. Beloff is the language of ICC. As we all know that what happened in between Asif & Butt in the hearing. The lawyer of M. Asif is the brother of British prime minister David Cameron who also know the chairman of the so called independent tribunal Beloff.

Asif cleared himself in front of the ICC that he bowled no-balls as according to the instructions of Butt (as he was captain) but he wasn’t aware of the plans of Butt. The evidences (videos) are showing truth.

Whereas Butt & Amir are standing on the point that they don’t know how the prediction of Mazhar came true. The case is now moving against Salman Butt.

This time frame (January 08, 2011 – February 04, 2011) will be used to judge the activities of Pakistani trio as the referee has rung the bell. !! Butt v Asif !!

Hope the trio will come out of this intelligent web, it is looking difficult after the proceedings. ICC is playing games, they are out of the team since August 2010 & ICC failed to decide anything in 5 months. The main purpose was to get rid of this trio as they were the shining stars of Pakistan Cricket Team.

Danger level of this trio:

Salman Butt: Maximum (99.9%)

Mohammad Asif: Below of the medium line (40%)

Mohammad Amir: Minimum (25%)

 

 

‎ICC Rules about fixing:

Failing to report an improper approach from a potential fixer: 6 month ban.
Minimum: 5 Year ban.
Maximum: Life time ban.

We have to wait for the upcoming days to get further updates as the bomb is about to blow.

Lords, London – England: British police on Sunday bailed without charge a man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.

Several people are saying that these allegations are quite right & the players must be punished. The simple answer is these are accusations because they are not proved yet & will not because of the weak strength of the evidences.

Hidden facts behind these fake evidences (People saying these are real, here is the answer that these are fake):

1) Picture of Salman Butt with so called ‘fixer’ Majeed & so called ‘reporter’ of ‘News of the World’ :

Take a close look of this picture ==>

  • Salman Butt is in front, he should be stand in between of them.
  • You can see how much is the difference between the quality of Salman Butt pic, the so called ‘fixer’ pic & the reporter pic.
  • The width of the shadow of Salman’s neck is too big then it comes in real.
  • Have a look at the right side bottom of the picture, bottom of the so called ‘fixer’ Majeed, there is some thing with white border & with black inner surface, what is it, may be a chair or table or some thing. One thing proves here that the photographer is not professional. Then how he gets high quality picture of Salman Butt.
  • The left arm of the jacket/coat which Salman Butt is wearing is so straight, in real its not look like this. Check the yellow line on the left arm of the Salman Butt.

  • If you are still not believing, let’s believe it is true for a while, this picture can be take on some kind of party, the press ‘reporter’ is there, the so called ‘fixer’ is the agent of several ‘Pakistani players’. Still it is not proving that any kind of fixing here.

2) 1st Video in which the so called ‘Reporter’ is giving money to so called ‘Fixer’:

Watch the video carefully:

  • No time is mentioned, it might be recorded after the overs or after the day.
  • When ever any kind of bookie takes such a big amount, he never counts it & he always receive cash in the form of briefcase.
  • What kind of hidden camera is this, which is just fixed in front of the so called ‘fixer’ & table? A CCTV, no because such a hidden camera can’t provide high quality result (colour view) with high quality voice.

3) 2nd Video in which the so called ‘Reporter’ is giving cash to the so called ‘Fixer’ in the car & after this ‘Fixer’ is giving his jacket to Wahab Riaz:

Watch this video carefully:

  • Again no date & time is mentioned.
  • So called ‘Fixer’ is seeing in the camera & talking.
  • Amazingly, so called ‘Reporter’ is giving cash to the so called ‘Fixer’ in the car where there is light & people are walking on the road near the car.
  • 3 cameras are in the car according to the video & so called ‘Fixer’ even can’t point out a single camera & he is looking into it.
  • In the car the so called ‘Fixer’ is wearing ‘Light Blue’ shirt & when he is giving his jacket to Wahab Riaz, he is wearing ‘Black’ shirt.
  • Showing or Giving jacket is not proving anything, because the weather in England is cold & may be Wahab Riaz is feeling cold so Wahab just borrowed the jacket from him.

4) Why the ‘News of the World’ team didn’t went to Police on August 27, 2010:

  • Because the evidence were not ready.
  • Because they were waiting for some kind of poor performance so they can provide more strength to there fake evidences.
  • Some people are saying that because of their weekly edition they leaked the videos on August 28, 2010, well this is not the reason because if they would’ve visited the Scotland Yard on August 27, 2010 with their evidences then there was a chance that Scotland Yard would’ve kept the videos secret until August 28, 2010.

5) So Called ‘Fixer’ Mazhar Majeed released on bail:

Scotland Yard on Sunday bailed without charge a man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud bookmakers.

“A 35 year-old man has been bailed until a date in the future”, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

6) Salman Butt refuses to resign after false allegations:

The captain of Pakistan Test Cricket Team insisted he would not be resigning after being implicated in an alleged betting scam.

The matter is almost over, the criticisers must now stop criticising. The English media completely failed in their ridiculous mission.

7) Pakistani players can leave England:

The Pakistani players at the center of the scandal are free to leave the country, London’s Metropolitan Police said Monday.
