Sepaktakraw Next On The List For Auditors After MNCF - Khairy


KUALA LUMPUR, March 6 (Bernama) -- The Youth and Sports Ministry is expected to conduct an audit check on the Sepaktakraw Association of Malaysia (PSM) once the audit report on the Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF) is ready.

Its minister Khairy Jamaluddin said his ministry's audit would need about two weeks to complete the MNCF report.

"Once the report on MNCF is ready we will decide on PSM. The PSM president Datuk Ahmad Ismail had met me and submitted his report, including the association's audit report.

"Right now I am still studying the report before making any decision," he told reporters after opening the Paralympics Sports Excellence Centre in Kg Pandan, here Thursday.

Former Malaysian Sepak Takraw Players Welfare and Recreation Sports Club had questioned PSM's management of an allocation of RM2 million and urged Khairy to take action against the association after carrying out an audit report.

Its president Rommi Suhendra wants to know if the PSM had spent the money wisely.

The PSM has been embroiled in controversy since performing miserably at the Myanmar SEA Games in December last year while players and sepaktakraw fans have called for changes in the leadership, claiming a lack of development and results.

Meanwhile, Khairy said that the National football team's 2-1 win over Yemen in their final qualifying match in Group D of the 2015 Asian Cup Qualifier at the Tahnon Bin Mohamed Stadium in Al-Ain City in Dubai showed that the players were committed and determined to win.

"There was no change in their technique or tactical play but the win was due to their grit and commitment. But interim coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee has carried out his task and managed the team well," he said.
