AFF Final fixed?


Jakarta Casual's Anthony Sutton speaks of a rather juicy scandal that is making its rounds in Indonesia.

For the record, Malaysia won the AFF Suzuki Cup final by a 4-2 aggregate (Malaysia won 3-0 in KL; lost 2-1 in Jakarta).

Sutton, in his posting 'More Juicy Scandal' wrote:

"A story doing the rounds at the moment, well over the last couple of days, revolves around allegations that some Indonesian players conspired to 'throw' the AFF Cup Final 1st leg in KL.

I first heard allegations a couple of weeks ago and was given the identity of the players involved but as is policy I left it. Rumours is rumours and breaking a story like this is best left to people with better lawyers than I!"


Several Indonesian dailies have also highlighted the matter as seen here and here.

A case of sore losers? Or is there any truth behind such claims?

I would certainly like to get my hands on the supposed email.

UPDATE (8.33pm): A little bird in Jakarta claims that the local Polis have confirmed that the email is fake. I would like to see the newspapers confirming this nevertheless.

Also note that the final was closely monitored (live streaming) by betting sites as seen here, here and here.

UPDATE (9.17pm): Got the email! But also got confirmation that Indonesian police not investigating the email which was signed off by an 'Eli Cohen, Pegawai Pajak'.

The second paragraph of the email states:

"Dari testimony yang disampaikan ternyata sangat mengejutkan yaitu adanya dugaan skandal suap yang terjadi dalam Final Piala AFF yang dilangsungkan di Malaysia. Disampaikan bahwa kekalahan tim sepak bola Indonesia dari tuan rumah Malaysia saat itu adalah sudah ditentukan sebelum pertandingan dimulai. Hal ini terjadi karena adanya permainan atau skandal suap yang dilakukan oleh Bandar Judi di Malaysia dengan petinggi penting di PSSI yaitu XX dan XXX (ia menulis inisial dua nama, Red)."

HD says: Anthony perhaps I could finally do my law degree some justice by 'advising' you if the need arises. Don't worry, I won't charge by the hour. Lol!!

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.

Why?

It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.

UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
