Ijaz Butt refuses to apologise for England

Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ijaz Butt flew into England on Tuesday still steadfastly refusing to apologise for his role in a row over ‘spot-fixing’ that has been the talk of world cricket.

Butt, due to meet with his London lawyers on Wednesday, gave little away when asked by reporters after getting off his plane Tuesday if he’d apologise.

“I will talk to you people once I am through with my visit here.”

As to whether he was ready for legal action if he didn’t apologise, Butt said: “It depends, we’ll see what happens. “There is a lot of confusion, once I am through (with this visit) most of this confusion will be overcome.”

Butt is due to meet Elizabeth Robertson, the British lawyer representing Pakistani players and the PCB over the spot-fixing allegations.

He is also expected to meet Scotland Yard officers who have already interviewed Test captain Salman Butt and bowlers Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Aamer and Wahab Riaz.
