Tunku Ismail slams FAM for pardoning 84 match-fixers

The Regent of Johor, Tunku Ismail ibni Sultan Ibrahim has lashed out at Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) for pardoning the 84 players that were guilty of match-fixing in 1994.

The Johor Darul Ta’azim (JDT) owner said that football in Malaysia is currently heading towards a glorious era, but it is overshadowed by the fact that the national football association is seemingly allowing bribery to take place in the sport again because players will no longer be haunted by fear as they will eventually be forgiven in the future.

“Have FAM considered the long-term effects if bribery is easily pardoned? How will it serve the new generation?” Tunku Ismail asked on the Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page.

“FAM should have stuck with their original stance and not be bothered about the offenders.”

Tunku Ismail also said that the acknowledgement of corruption is worse than the deed itself.
