FAM sued for firecracker incident

A former graphic designer has filed a suit for RM776,000 against the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM), claiming that its negligence caused him to lose his right eye and his income.

Ahmad Jazimin Mohd Jalaludin (pic) was at the football match between Malaysia and Singapore football at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil, organised by FAM on July 28 last year.

He said that at about 8.45pm, a firecracker from the spectator seats had fallen and exploded by his right eye, causing him to suffer serious injury.

HD says: Here's hoping no more fans will be injured while watching football. Let's respect each other at the stands.


  1. cctv should be installed at all sections of the stadium. easier to nab culprits who misbehave during matches. not only firecrackers, water bottles also were flying down from 3rd tier into their own fellow supporters. police n rela just stood there doing nothing with hands at their back. if they could catch a hooligans or 2, it could prevent others from repeating the misdemeanour.
