2010 cricket match fixer Majeed gets cleaner's job at UK jail

London, Mon, 06 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 6 (ANI): British cricket agent Mazhar Majeed, who played a crucial role in the 2010 controversial 'match fixing' scandal, reportedly has fixed himself a cushy cleaner's job in a jail in Britain.


Majeed orchestrated the betting scam that involved Test match cheating by Pakistan's then captain Salman Butt and two fast bowlers Mohammed Asif and Mohammed Amir. ccording to The Sun, he gets 9.50 pounds a week for cleaning at the Ford open prison in West Sussex. He also gets his own cell with freeview TV.


"He's over the moon. He could have been given harder jobs," a source said, while another added: "Inmates grumbled about favouritism. One said, 'I'd take bets on him getting an easy job'."


Butt, and Asif, and Amir were jailed for the spot fixing scandal in 2010 against England.


Amir was recently released after serving half of his six-month sentence due to good behaviour. (ANI)
