    Default Mohammad Asif to be released from jail on May 5

    Karachi: Banned Pakistan pacer, Mohammad Asif will be released from prison on May 5 after completing his jail term in the United Kingdom.

    Asif will decide when he plans to return to Pakistan after being released from prison, said his lawyer Ravi Gill.

    "Asif will complete his jail term on May 5 and all formalities have been completed for his release," he said.

    Asif and Pakistan teammates, Mohammad Aamir and Salman Butt were given different jail terms by a crown court in London last year in October for being involved in spot-fixing during Pakistan's tour to England in 2010.

    The trio are also serving a five year ban by the anti-corruption tribunal of the International Cricket Council imposed in February 2011 for the same offence.

    Aamir, the youngest of the three, returned home in March after completing a six months jail term in a youth detention centre in the UK and he has also decided against appealing against the five year ban imposed on him by the ICC.

    "We have heard Asif is being released this week. Whenever he returns to Pakistan, the terms and conditions of the ICC ban will remain on him and he will not be allowed to take part in any cricket related activity in Pakistan," an official of the board said.

    Asif, 29, who took 106 wickets in 23 tests and another 36 wickets in 48 one-day internationals, was jailed for 12 months by the crown court while Butt was given a 30-month sentence.

    All three had appealed against their sentences but had their appeals rejected by the Lord Chief Justice.

    Aamir since returning home has been kept away from all cricket activities and the board has not even allowed him to use the facilities at the National cricket academy in Lahore.

    A family member of Asif said they wanted him to return home as soon as he was released as they were dying to meet him.

    Default Pak pacer Mohammad Asif released from jail

    Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif was released from a British jail after completing half of a one-year sentence for his role in the spot-fixing scandal.



    Asif, 29, was set free from the Canterbury Prison in Southeast England on Thursday morning, his London-based law firm SJS Solicitors said.

    Asif was jailed in November after the Southwark Crown Court in London found him guilty of conspiring to cheat and accept corrupt payments over deliberate no-balls bowled during the Lord's Test against England in August 2010.



    The fast bowler is still under ICC suspension and it is not known if he would challenge his seven year-ban (two years suspended).

    His lawyer, though, had indicated on Wednesday that the bowler will try to clear his name.
    "I look forward to meeting him and helping him in his legal fight to restore the reputation he once had," Asif's lawyer Ravi Sukul had said.
    Then Pakistan Test skipper Salman Butt and talented young fast bowler Mohammad Amir were also jailed on the same charges.

    Amir was released in February after three months in jail while Butt is still serving a 30-month sentence.
    The agent of these players, Mazhar Majeed, who was exposed through a sting operation by now defunct News of the World, was also handed a 32-month sentence.
