Malaysian FA welcomes corruption probe

The Malaysian FA have welcomed a corruption probe into three players from a second division club over suspicions of match-fixing.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission have revealed that a trio from Malaysian Indian Football Association (MIFA) in the Malaysia Premier League, have been brought in for questioning.

MIFA had conducted their own internal investigation over a 6-3 defeat to Sarawak and 7-2 loss to Uitm FC, before submitting their findings to the anti-corruption commission.

“They were proactive and this is what we want other teams to do,” said FAM secretary general Datuk Hamidin Amin.

“We will wait for the MACC investigations to be completed and the case to be brought to court. The players will be banned for life if they are found guilty of match fixing.”

The three players will be detained until April 12 before any further action is taken.
