Khairy Hopes For Good Outcome For Chong Wei

KUCHING, April 12 (Bernama) -- Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin today expressed hope that there will be a good outcome for Malaysian badminton ace Datuk Lee Chong Wei's doping case.

"He (Chong Wei) called me after the hearing and told me that the Badminton World Federation (BWF) had given him and his lawyers the opportunity to explain.

"Chong Wei also said that he was satisfied with the procedure throughout the hearing.

"We have done our best, we have prepared well for the case and I think Chong Wei's lawyers led by Mike Morgan have presented the best defence possible for him.

"All we could do now is to wait for the outcome of the hearing," Khairy told reporters after the launch of Fit Malaysia by Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem at Padang Merdeka Sunday.

It was reported that the hearing process was held about eight hours in Amsterdam on Saturday and the verdict is expected within three weeks.

Chong Wei, 32, was temporarily suspended by the BWF after he was tested positive for dexamethasone at the World Championships in Copenhagen, in August last year.
