"...fixers and officials in the MSL...."

UPDATE 10.01pm: LionsXII annihilated Sabah 9-0 in a Super League match that ended minutes ago. Wouldn't such a scoreline raise any suspicion? Anyone? No one?


Three Malaysian League teams are under investigation by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in relation to match fixing this season, said the Chairman of the Vetting, Monitoring and Transparency Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat announced.

The announcement was made on Feb 13, 2012 as posted on the FA of Malaysia website.

On Feb 15, I confronted a Pos Malaysia coached who admitted having met MACC officials, as reported here.

On the same day, my article on Osman Bakar being named as the boss for the new coordination and integrity unit was published, as seen here.

And in my final column in Mailsport earlier this week I asked what is the outcome of the investigation by MACC as seen here.

Nothing I presume.

It remains unclear if the investigations on the teams have ended or if there were any investigations to begin with as claimed by Aseh.

While we continue to ponder on such questions, another Singaporean (pic) has been linked to fixing matches in the Italian leagues. He made millions fixing 33 games in two years - as reported by The New Paper.

And the paragraphs below was taken from an article published in The New Paper on May 31, 2012;

Said a Fifa investigator, who wanted to be known only as John: "The recent arrests of players in Serie A as well as fixers and officials in the MSL (Malaysian Super League) show significant efforts to eradicate the individuals who are corrupting the game of football.

Our investigations have shown there are match-fixing syndicates operating globally and each syndicate comprises different levels of operators."

Who are the fixers and officials in MSL? Are we going to look into this, be defensive about it or pretend it's business as usual?

HD says: Sigh!
