Banned KL player Hafizi sues FAM

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Kuala Lumpur player Hafizi Roslee, who was banned for life by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) because of his alleged involvement in match-fixing and bribery, has filed a suit against the FAM.

Hafizi, 29, who filed the suit on Feb 26 through Khairuddin, Ngiam & Tan at the High Court Registrar here, named FAM and the Kuala Lumpur Football Association (KLFA) as the first and second defendants, respectively.

His lawyer Kevin De Rozario said the court had set March 17 for case management in the presence of Judicial Commissioner Rosilah Yop.

In his writ of summons, Hafizi urged the court to nullify FAM’s decision to ban him for life from football activities.

Hafizi alleged that the FAM’s action was unconstitutional as it breached the rules of natural justice and public policy as the FAM had heard his case on Dec 20 without him present.

On Dec 20, the FAM disciplinary committee banned Hafizi and four other players – Fadhulah Yunsiar, Phoo Kai Lun, Khairul Anuar Shafie and Jeremy Danker – for life and imposed a fine of RM20,000 each, for their alleged involvement in match-fixing and bribery.

Apart from the players, Kuala Lumpur coach Stanislav Lieskovsky from Slovakia, assistant manager Rosli Omar and kitman Shaari Jani were also found guilty of a similar charge. – Bernama
