PETALING JAYA: Veteran sports administrator Datuk Sieh Kok Chi’s daughter Shen-Nern has passed away.
The 47-year-old Shen-Nern breathed her last in her sleep yesterday morning.
Kok Chi was in the news recently after Shen-Nern, who was born intellectually disabled, allegedly became a victim of property fraud.
Kok Chi discovered that Shen-Nern’s share of a shop lot in Seri Petaling – jointly purchased with a former national athlete – had been transferred to the latter without their knowledge.
Kok Chi later lodged a police report and also initiated a civil suit.
The 82-year-old Kok Chi himself has been battling respiratory problems recently.
The former national waterpolo player served as Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) secretary from 1992-2015.
The OCM executive board and administration conveyed their condolences and sympathies to the former long-serving secretary on the passing of his beloved daughter.
