Butt appeals against 30-month jail sentenceNovember 9th, 2011 - 9:02 pm ICT by IANS
London, Nov 9 (IANS) Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has appealed against his 30-month jail sentence for spot-fixing in a Test match against England at Lord’s last year.
Butt, along with fellow teammates Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer, were sentenced Thursday after a London court found them guilty.
Butt’a lawyer Yasin Patel verified that an appeal had been filed against the sentence, the Guardian reported Wednesday.
A crown court found Butt to be the “orchestrator” for directing Asif and Aamer to bowl a no-ball at a pre-determined moment.
Butt is reportedly sharing a cell with his co-conspirator Asif at Wandsworth prison, though the prison service has refused to confirm the claim, the report said.
Asif is serving a 12-month sentence while Aamer, who was given a six-month sentence, has been reportedly moved from Feltham Young Offender’s institution to the smaller Portland prison.
