Spot-fixing charges: Sindh High Court seeks Danish Kaneria's bank account details to recover fines

Karachi: The Sindh High Court has called for banned leg-spinner Danish Kaneria's bank statement in connection with fines imposed on him on spot-fixing charges.

The SHC's decision to ask for the bank account details of Kaneria came after a petition filed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for recovery of costs of the spot-fixing trial between 2012-2014.

The ECB is seeking attachment of the 35-year-old's property valuations to recover the 249,000 pound fine imposed on him.

The SHC bench, headed by Justice Muhammad Junaid Ghaffar, directed the Habib Bank Limited branch to give details of Kaneria's accounts at the next hearing.

The ECB filed a petition in the SHC last August through a local lawyer, seeking recovery of costs and fines against the leg-spinner who is serving the life ban since 2012.

The disciplinary and anti-corruption tribunal of the ECB imposed the life ban on Kaneria in June, 2012 after finding him guilty of attempting to spot fix matches of the Essex county team in 2009.

The panel had also imposed a fine of 100,000 pounds on Kaneria, who subsequently lost two appeals against the life ban and fine.

"I don't know what they want now. I am already financially in a bad state and have spent all my hard earned money on the legal costs for fighting this case to clear my name," Kaneria said.
