June 20, 2021

LAHORE: An emergency meeting of the General Body of the Chase Federation of Pakistan has been convened online.

The meeting was called after the governing board of the World Chess Federation issued a warning letter to the Pakistani authorities for possible suspension. The reason behind the warning letter was that Saleem Akhtar, Election Commissioner nominated by the Chase Federation of Pakistan and the World Chess Federation, was arrested by the FIA on July 8 in Islamabad. He was arrested in connection with a possible attempt to disrupt the election and was later released.
