Salim Malik seeks audio, video recordings from PCB to answer questionnaire
Refusing to reply to a questionnaire, former captain Salim Malik has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to provide the audio or video recordings of the transcript sent to him, media reports suggested.
Earlier, the PCB’s Anti-Corruption Unit had sent the questionnaire to Malik about the meetings he had in London in 2011 with some people, including Mazhar Majeed of defunct News of the World.
The former cricketer is of the view that the recordings are necessary as evidence to back up the transcript.
Malik says he could not recall the exact conversation as he had met with a lot of people and the meetings were held so many years back.
The questionnaire in question was first sent to him 2013 but he didn’t reply which prompted the PCB to send that again.
Malik was banned for life in 2000 on the recommendations of the Justice Malik Qayyum Commission but the matter was referred to a lower court – after challenging the ban in the Supreme Court – which in 2008 permitted him to take part in cricket activities.
Since then Malik has been trying to convince the PCB and wants to get involved in coaching youngsters and ready to follow all anti-corruption reforms and laws.
