Sports Ministry and FAM to discuss about match fixing problems

The Youth  and Sports Ministry will hold a meeting with the Football Association of Malaysia's (FAM) Inspection, Monitoring and Transparency Committee on issue of corruption in football, which has reared its ugly head again.

Its minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek said the meeting to be held next week, also aimed at obtaining information regarding actions that have been taken by the committee especially in identifying the causes.

"I think the action taken by FAM on players and officials found guilty (of corruption), was positive. The next step is to ask the players to declare their assets and I feel this can be an extremely positive move.

"But this is not enough because the important thing is to educate the players and officials. This corruption comes from a sense of greed," he told reporters here today.

Ahmad Shabery said he hoped that the committee could identify all possibilities that led to corruption, including on football associations ability to pay the players salaries on time.
