DUBAI Mohammad Asif, who has to be dropped for the Pakistans home series against New Zealand to be played here in UAE, can only enter into the United Arab Emirates (UAE) when the 27-year-old Pakistani pacer would have crossed the age of fifty. It is a 25-year-ban that I had recommended for him for carrying drugs, Shakir Hashim Al Darmaki, the Senior Public Prosecutor (Khalifa) in Dubai had said exclusively. According to the sources, Asifs eyes were scanned before being deported to Pakistan last year and can easily be caught if he tries to re-enter this country without proper visa or documents. Pakistan is scheduled to play three ODIs and two Twenty20 games in Abu Dhabi and Dubai Sports City (DSC). The substance (opium) found in Mohammad Asifs wallet was not on a out of completion prohibition list, but he was booked under trafficking law (No 14 of 1995 regarding drugs as amended by the Federal Law No I of 2005). The Pakistan fast bowler, was carrying 0.24 grams of opium when he was held in Dubai for nearly three weeks in June last year, a government official in Dubai revealed. Asif was detained in Dubai for possession of a banned substance but later was deported to Pakistan with the authorities saying that the quantity of the banned drug found in his wallet was insignificant. The rules in this country are very strict and Asifs ban can only be revoked under special circumstances by the UAE Shaikh, a local resident Nilesh Shah, who has been living here since last 15 years, said. The PCB did try through diplomatic channels to overturn this ban but it yielded no results. According to the English and Arabic version of the order (both copies in possession of this scribe) passed by Mohammd Ahmed Rashid Al Nuaimy (Public Prosecution Dy. President) and granted by the Attorney General of UAE, Asif was booked under six articles of law no. 14 of 1995, which was ammended in 2005.
