NAB dismisses case against Sethi

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has dismissed corruption charges against Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi, declaring them as NFA (Not Fit for Action).
The verdict by NAB Lahore in a letter dated May 14, states that the complaint against Sethi has been dismissed as ‘NFA’ which means that the investigations have revealed nothing untoward and that the allegations have been found to be totally unsubstantiated.
The allegations against Sethi were levelled by former Test fast bowler Sarfraz Nawaz who made malicious attempts of defaming the PCB chief and tarnishing his reputation through a series of venomous interviews and articles that appeared in the media over the past few years.
The PCB has already initiated legal proceedings against Sarfraz and he has been barred from making any comments against the PCB chairman.
The verdict by NAB is a further testament of Sethi’s outstanding work for the PCB and Pakistan cricket which includes the successful launch of the now hugely popular Pakistan Super League (PSL) besides the return of international cricket to the country in the shape of tours from Sri Lanka and a high-profile World XI comprising players from seven Test-playing nations to Lahore, and more recently by the West Indies team to Karachi to play a three-match T20 series.
