Cairns’s lawyer arrested

Wellington: The London lawyer, who successfully represented New Zealand cricket star Chris Cairns in a high-profile libel suit, has been arrested, the cricketer said on Thursday, amid reports it was connected to his match-fixing related case.

Cairns, who is at the centre of ongoing match-fixing allegations, said he had learnt that his lawyer Andrew Fitch-Holland had been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.

London’s Metropolitan Police would only say the arrest was in relation to a civil case, but New Zealand reports said it was connected to the libel case involving Cairns and the former boss of the Indian Premier League, Lalit Modi.
