Petition against Najam Sethi dismissed
Mr. Najam Sethi was appointed as head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on August 9, 2017 after the meeting of PCB’s Governing Board. The members had unanimously elected Sethi as the 30th chairman of the cricketing board.
Recently, a petition was filed in the Lahore High Court (LHC) for the dismissal of Sethi from the chairman position by a petitioner named Farzana Kausar. However the Judge of Lahore High Court, Justice Shahid Karim dismissed the petition stating that the Kausar failed to satisfy the court with her arguments.
Rejecting the petition, the court stated that being just a cricket lover isn’t a sufficient ground to challenge this decision. The honorable judge said that the appointed was completely legal and in accordance with the PCB constitution and there was no Federal Government intervention in the matter.
