LHC dismisses Ashfaq Group appeal regarding PFF accounts issue

By our correspondent

KARACHI: FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee on Wednesday said that the Lahore High Court has dismissed the Ashfaq Group’s appeal against the NC concerning bank accounts.
The NC informed that after the civil court had restrained the Ashfaq Group from using the PFF bank accounts under a restraining order, the group went into appeal in the sessions court which was rejected. Ashfaq group then appealed in the LHC and there too it faced rejection.
“After taking over the football house Lahore by the Ashfaq group, FIFA suspended Pakistan’s membership. Later, realizing the delicacy of the situation, the government authorities handed over control of the building from the Ashfaq Group to the FIFA Normalization Committee. Pakistan’s hopes of ending the suspension have been brightened, but the control of PFF bank accounts also needs to be restored to NC,” the NC said.
NC chairman Haroon Malik has said that he will continue his efforts for the early resumption of domestic and international football activities in Pakistan.
Earlier the plaintiff and NC member Shahid Niaz Khokhar had requested the court to hear this case of national interest on a daily basis which was accepted by the honourable court. The hearing on a daily basis will begin from Thursday (today).
