MACC starts inquest into alleged match-fixing

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) records statements from Terengganu FA personnel and players as the process of investigation starts

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has started its investigation into allegations of match-fixing involving Terengganu players in the Malaysia Cup.

Among those called to testify were Terengganu State Football Association president, Datuk Che Mat Jusoh, and goalkeeper Sharbinee Allawee.

MACC director for the state of Terengganu, Md Yusoff Md Zain confirmed that a number of FA officials and players were also called to testify.

"We have started the investigations, but it is still in the preliminary stage so we have allowed the individuals to leave after their statements were taken," Yusoff told reporters.

Yusoff said he would not comment further because the investigation is still in its infancy.

On Saturday, a couple of Terengganu players were accused of selling their group match against Kedah and this claim led to MACC’s involvement in the case.

The match ended 1-1.
