Cricket Player from Pakistan Seeks Asylum

December 18, 2010 § Leave a comment

Zulqarnain Haider, who has sought asylum in the UK after a series against South Africa in Dubai early last month, is still waiting for a decision on his application for asylum. After threatening to expose people who are corrupt in Pakistan cricket on his Facebook page, Haider has surprisingly gone underground, leading to speculation that perhaps his asylum request has been granted. But his brother Aqeel Hiader said that the application was still under process in the British Home Office. “His stay has been extended in the UK by the authorities and he is living peacefully in London, waiting for a decision on his asylum. “Right now he does not want to say anything on cricket until his asylum application is decided,” Aqeel said. “He has also hired a new lawyer to represent him in the case and he is waiting for things to settle down before he can make a comeback to cricket,” he added. Aqeel said that so far no one from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had contacted the family in Lahore regarding the threatening calls that Zulqarnain’s wife was getting a few days back. (The Hindu)
