MAJID HAQ SUSPENSION OVER
Press Statement 25th June 2015 by Aamer Anwar Solicitor acting for cricketer Majid Haq during his disciplinary investigation by Cricket Scotland.
“I’m glad to see that Cricket Scotland has finally lifted the suspension of Majid Haq after three long months of a disciplinary investigation.
That anyone should be punished for tweeting ‘Always tougher when your in the minority #colour #race’ sends out the wrong message and Cricket Scotland should take a long hard look at its procedures.
Mr Haq wishes to make no comment, it has been a hugely stressful time for him and especially his parents. He is now looking forward to getting back to playing cricket.”
Cricket Scotland Press Statement issued this morning:
Cricket Scotland has announced today that following careful consideration of matters it has decided to take no further action against Majid Haq following the incidents which lead to him leaving the Cricket Scotland party at the recent Cricket World. Mr Haq is free with immediate effect to return to his duties under his contract with Cricket Scotland. Cricket Scotland will be making no further comment about this matter which is now considered to be closed.
