Seven years charge possible for spot fixers

Latest News/LONDON: The three Pakistan cricketers convicted of fixing parts of a test match will find out Thursday whether they will spend time in jail for their role in the sports’ most serious corruption scandal in more than a decade.

Seven years charge possible for spot fixers

Judge Jeremy Cooke spent Wednesday listening to mitigating statements from lawyers representing Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Amir and sports agent Mazhar Majeed, all of whom have been connected to a betting scam involving the deliberate bowling of no-balls.

Cooke will consider the case overnight before delivering their sentences at London’s Southwark Crown Court at 10 a.m. (1000 GMT) Thursday.

Former captain Butt and bowler Asif were found guilty on Tuesday of conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments. Amir and Majeed pleaded guilty to the charges before the trial.

The latter charge carries a possible jail term of seven years. / Agencies
