Dubai's Attorney General will conduct an inquiry into the case involving Mohammad Asif, who has been in detention in the emirate for the suspected possession of an illegal substance.
"Our lawyer has confirmed that Asif's case will start on June 22 and no charges have yet been lodged against him," Shafqat Naghmi, the PCB's chief operating officer, told AFP.
A Dubai court had referred Asif's case to the Attorney General last Sunday after the public prosecutor had completed his investigation and made his recommendations. "We have maintained that Asif is innocent until proven guilty and all speculations on the case are unwarranted," Naghmi said.
Asif had been held at the Dubai International Airport on June 1 after authorities allegedly found a banned substance in his wallet.
If convicted, Asif could face a sentence of up to four years. He is also likely to face an investigation by the PCB.
