Karachi:Former chief operating officer of Pakistan Cricket Board, Shafqat Naghmi, has decided to file a defamation suit against current PCB chairman Ejaz Butt for levelling charges of financial mismanagement against him.
Naghmi said he would file the defamation suit against Butt and senior PCB officials later this week.
"I will claim a public apology from them and one rupee in damage to show these people what I think they are worth," Naghmi said.
Naghmi appeared before the Senate Standing Committee on Sports to respond to allegations of financial mismanagement and misuse of power made against him by the present PCB chief and other senior officials.
He made a strong defence of his case at the Senate hearing particularly to allegations that he had misused his position/funds and fudged accounts of construction/renovation work of an enclosure at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore.
"This board does not deserve to remain in power. They don't know what they are doing. The defamation suit is meant to expose them before the public," Naghmi said.
He said considering the serious nature of the allegations he could have claimed millions of rupees in damages.
"But I will claim one rupee damage just to make the point what I think about these people," he said.
