By Community | December 24, 2010
Michael Beloff, order QC, allergist today heard an application from Salman Butt’s new legal representation for an adjournment of the full hearing into the spot-fixing charges against three Pakistan cricketers, also including Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif.
Mr Beloff, the Chairman of the ICC Anti-Corruption Tribunal, following a lengthy telephone hearing and having received written submissions, has ruled that Mr Butt’s application is denied and as such, the full hearing will take place as scheduled from 6-11 January 2011 in Doha, Qatar.
The ICC Code of Conduct Commissioners are nominated by the Members countries while their allocation to a tribunal is by the Chairman of the ICC Code of Conduct Commission.
The ICC will make no further comment on this matter at this time.
