SC suspends IHC verdict on restoration of Zaka Ashraf as PCB chairman

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday suspended the judgement of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) regarding reinstatement of Chaudhry Zaka Ashraf as chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali issued interim order and accepted the appeal filed by the Ministry of Inter-provincial Coordination issuing notices to the concerned parties.

During the hearing, Asma Jahangir on behalf of the ministry said that the IHC’s intrusion in matters of policy may lead to undermining the sport of cricket. Subsequently, the court annulled the IHC’s decision given by Justice Nurul Haq Qureshi that ordered the reinstatement of Zaka Ashraf as chairman of the PCB.

The apex court moreover issued notices to the parties involved for May 27 and adjourned the hearing of the case.
