Lahore, Dec.4 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt is yet appoint the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) despite the expiry of the deadline (November 30), which was set by the Governing Body (GB).

The post has been lying vacant since last year after Arif Kichloo resigned. Instead of appointing an experienced person on the important post, Butt appointed his close relative Mohammed Naeem to look after board's financial matters, on an honorary basis.

Later, the Board members decided to allow Naeem to work till March 31, 2009, to be followed by the appointment of a full-time CFO.

Naeem's tenure has been full of controversies and insiders said he almost acts as the vice-chairman of the board.

The National Assembly's subcommittee summoned him twice regarding different issues, but he did not appear on both occasions. (ANI)
