The Supreme Court stopped the notice of new PCB Governing Board and Najam Sethi again reinstated to the job of Chairman PCB on Friday July 11, 2014. The 2 member bench comprising of Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali and Justice Saqib Nisar heard the appointment case of PCB chairman.
Attorney General, Salman Aslam Butt,told the court the PM Nawaz Sharif wants to keep the new interim governing body set-up. Justice Saqib Nisar remarked that does the PM has the power to act arbitrarily? Justice Saqib Nisar more said that the government’s a notice was akin to challenging the court’s power. The Court announced the new PCB constitution drafted under the chairmanship of Najam Sethi against the law as his appointment was challenged in the court.
Justice Saqib Nisar suggested that Najam Sethi and Zaka Ashraf both hired as the member of the governing body. The Attorney General stated that the PCB constitution has no such provision, however, Zaka Ashraf’s attorney Imtiaz Siddiqui had no objection to this kind of set up. The Supreme Court bench stopped the notification of the PCB Governing Board and restored Najam Sethi again as the chairman PCB.
