Let the cops do their job to bring culprits to justice, say FAM

PETALING JAYA: It has been two weeks but there are no answers on who inflicted the pain on national winger Faisal Halim.

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) are not only eager to find the culprit who splashed acid on Faisal but also the perpetrators behind the attacks on Akhyar Rashid and Safiq Rahim, who were victims of crime this month.

The national body have urged the public to give space to the police to conduct their investigations.

FAM secretary-general Datuk Noor Azman Rahman does not want unnecessary statements, which may prevent the cops from doing their duties.

“These three incidents happened at public premises and not inside a stadium or anywhere under the jurisdiction of FAM,” he said.

“Until today, we do not know whether the three incidents are related to football or not. It is best if we give the space to the police to conduct their investigations without any interference.”

Azman further added that the police were giving regular updates to FAM.

“We have to trust the police to do a thorough investigation until the perpetrators are brought to court of justice.”

Faisal suffered the acid attack at a shopping mall in Damansara on May 5 but is showing good progress in recovery.

Winger Akhyar, 25, who was a robbery victim in Kuala Terengganu on May 2, has returned to training while former national captain Safiq, 36, had his car windows smashed in Johor Baru on May 8.
