Banned KL player drags FAM to court

Former Kuala Lumpur player Hafizi Roslee who was banned for life by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) due to his alleged involvement in match-fixing and bribery, has filed a suit against
the national body.   

Hafizi, 29, who filed the suit on Feb 26 through Khairuddin, Ngiam & Tan at the High Court Registrar here, named FAM and the Kuala Lumpur Football Association (KLFA) as the first and second defendants, respectively.
   
His lawyer Kevin De Rozario said the court had set March 17 for case management in the presence of Judicial Commissioner Rosilah Yop.
   
In his writ of summon, Hafizi urged the court to nullify FAM's decision to ban him for life from football activities.
   
Hafizi alleged that the FAM's action was unconstitutional and done without arbitrary which was a breach of the rules of natural justice and public policy since the FAM had heard his case on Dec 20, last year without his presence.
   
On Dec 20, the FAM Disciplinary Committee banned Hafizi and four other players - Fadhullah Yunsifar, Phoo Kai Lun, Khairul Anuar Shafie and Jeremy Danker - for life and imposed a fine of RM20,000, for their alleged involvement in match-fixing and bribery.
   
Apart from the players, former Kuala Lumpur coach Stanislav Lieskovsky from Slovakia, assistant manager Rosli Omar and Saari Jani, an official with the team, were also found guilty for a similar charge. - Bernama

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.
