Ad-hoc arbitration panel joins list of firsts in KL2017

The Kuala Lumpur SEA Games has created a list of firsts.

Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin was the first Sultan to participate in the regional Games and he went on to win a gold medal in the equestrian endurance race.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin is the first minister to compete in the biennial Games - representing Malaysia in polo.

Another first is the creation of an ad-hoc arbitration panel - which was surprisingly not publicised.

The panel was set up to resolve disputes that may arise during the Games.

One of the arbitrator sitting in the panel is Sharon Chong Tze Ying, a lawyer attached to legal firm Skrine.

Chong once taught law at a private institution. 
Chong, who was appointed by the Olympic Council of Malaysia, is honoured and delighted to be part of history.

"We will ensure all disputes are resolved in an impartial and expedient manner and uphold the spirit of teamwork, sportsmanship and fairplay," she said.

Datuk M. Rajasekaran chairs the panel while the other arbitrator nominated by the Olympic Council of Malaysia is Samrith Kaur.

The other arbitrators are Charlie Lu Ho (Philippines) and Lau Kok Keng (Singapore).

Anand Ponnudurai serves as the secretary for the panel.
