Umar had paid fine of PKR 4.2 million imposed on him by International Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and PCB for breaching anti-corruption code.
This permission to Umar Akmal is part of his rehabilitation program which started last month. Umar has shown remorse in the program completed to date. He also attended an anti-corruption lecture and participated in a Q&A session conducted by the Security and Anti-Corruption Department.
CAS reduced Akmal’s 18-month to 12 months. He was suspended from all forms of the game after PCB found him guilty for being involved in suspicious activities before Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 5.
