LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – Jamaican police should face legal action for declaring Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer’s death murder, the team’s World Cup spokesman said, reports RTE Sports.
Pervez Jamil Mir also alleged the high-profile case unfairly cast suspicion on the country’s players.
‘The name of Pakistan has been maligned and the names of Pakistani cricketers have been maligned, because everybody became a suspect,’ Mir said in a telephone interview from Pakistan.
Several media outlets have reported that Jamaican police will announce they believe the 58-year-old Woolmer died in his hotel room in Jamaica of natural causes after his team’s upset defeat to Ireland in the cricket World Cup. Police have said he was strangled.
Jamaican Police Commissioner Lucius Thomas said on Wednesday his office has new information in the case and will make an announcement in the coming days, but refused to comment on the reports.
