Harrisburg, PA, (USA) : Apr. 30 : The suspended Pakistani batsman Khalid Latif has objected to the possible presence of Mr. Muhammad Azam Khan, the Senior General Manager (Vigilance & Security) of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in his next hearing on 2nd May.
The 31-year-old Latif has been asked to appear before the Anti-Corruption Unit to prove his innocence on the said date.
In a letter (a copy of which is in the possession of this Reporter), dated 29-04-2017, addressed to him, Khalid Latif has said, "I will appear before the PCB's ACU for my interview at 9.00 a.m. and I hope that since I have no trust on you, you will not participate during my interview, but if you do so, it will be a malafide act on your part and I will participate under protest in my interview".
Interestingly, Latif's contention is that the PCB's official had forced him to accept certain spot-fixing allegations and the recorded version of his conversation with the official has not been supplied to him.
Latif is determined to prove that he was not involved in the spot-fixing act in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the late-night approach by the so called bookie (Yousuf) was made known to the concerned officials very next day.
He is set to challenge the charges in the Lahore High Court on 4th May.
