Fix trial jury fails to reach verdict
Tuesday 01 November 2011
The jury in the trial of Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif has been told by the judge that he will accept a majority decision after jurors failed to reach a unanimous verdict in the case against the Pakistan players.
The jury told Mr Justice Clarke yesterday that they could not agree, and he said he will now accept a 10-2 majority decision. Butt and Asif deny charges of accepting corrupt payments and conspiracy to cheat.
