All is well, say NSC and Malaysia Muaythai Federation

As published in Mailsport today.

National Sports Council (NSC) insist they are not in charge of the national contingent at the on-going Muaythai World Championship in Langkawi.

Mailsport yesterday published extracts of a letter by an irate parent to Sport Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, alleging NSC's lack of professionalism in various issues from travel, lodging and administration.

Khairy, in a text message to Mailsport, said: "I think the letter carried some inaccurate info and NSC will respond to it."

Mailsport then contacted NSC athlete's department acting director Arrifin Ghani, who explained: "The sport doesn't come under our core programme. It is a special programme on a competition basis. The role we play is to merely provide grants. The programme is managed by Malaysia Muaythai Federation (MMF) in its entirety."

NSC and MMF then refuted the allegations, insisting there were no wrong-doing and that certain parties had misconstrued the situation.
