LAHORE - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) board of governors Thursday said that in a numbers of cricket regions/districts in Pakistan, the tenure of the elected office bearers stood expired but due to multiple reasons fresh elections were being delayed therefore it was decided to appoint interim committees to manage day to day affairs of such regions/districts.

They said in Abbotabad Region, the term of elected offices including that of Aamir Nawab whose tenure as RCA president expired on March 13, 2013 while an interim committee was appointed on May 9, 2013. “Aamir recently filed a civil suit before the Civil Court at Abbotabad and in absence of the PCB obtained a stay order. Although, the PCB was never heard in the said civil suit but in order to show respect to the learned civil court, the PCB complied with the said stay order and has maintained status quo since then. However, regrettably Amir Nawab filed a contempt application before the Civil Court at Abbotabad without disclosing the complete and true facts about the case,” they added.

“The PCB would like to bring on record that similar multiple matters are already sub judice before the Lahore High Court (LHC) wherein the honorable High Court till date has refused to interfere in the working of interim committees appointed for Lahore, Faisalabad and Sialkot Region. However, the said fact was not brought to the knowledge of the civil court and the stay order was obtained in a clandestine manner. The PCB would bring on record all these facts and orders passed so far by the Lahore Court, when it appears before the Civil Court at Abbotabad wherein the date of hearing has been fixed,” they concluded.
