KL graft probe widens with 10 more to be quizzed

PETALING JAYA: Ten more Kuala Lumpur FA officials and players are set to be hauled up by the FA of Malaysia’s (FAM) disciplinary committee for questioning in relation to match-fixing.

The FAM disciplinary committee were supposed to come out with a verdict on Tuesday on seven KLFA players who had pleaded not guilty to the match-fixing charge.

However, the committee chairman Datuk Taufek Abdul Razak said that they had to postpone their decision because the investigation is incomplete.

“We need more time to investigate ... I want to be fair. We will call up 10 more players and officials for questioning,” said Taufek after the committee meeting at Wisma FAM on Tuesday.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg and we need more time to investigate. We don’t want to just catch the minnows and let the sharks get away scot-free.”

Last month, the FAM disciplinary committee imposed a life ban on five Kuala Lumpur players and three team officials, including a kitman, for match-fixing this season.

The eight were also slapped with a RM20,000 fine each.

The team officials banned were Slovak coach Stanislav Lieskovsky, assistant manager Rosli Omar and kitman Shaari Jani.

The five players were Jeremy Danker, Khairul Anuar, Hafizi Roslee, Fadhulah Yunsiar and Phoo Kai Lun.
