Chief Minister of Terengganu, Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, was not happy with the decision made by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) in regards to the Larkin incident
Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, the chief minister of Terengganu, slammed the FAM for only punishing Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) with a RM30,000 fine.
Ahmad Said was fuming with the decision, as the disciplinary committee did not punish anything in regards to the assault made on their players by an official of JDT.
According to Astro Arena, Ahmad Said “That’s the thing, they made a biased decision. If you want to be the judge or the disciplinary, and (are) not brave enough to make the right and fair decision, then it’s best for you to just quit the position.”
Ahmad also stated that it is unacceptable that the FAM postponed the discussion regarding the issues.
“It’s weird. They gave the punishment because of security issues, but there must be someone who caused all of this. This is not about the punishment, but it’s about how the FAM handled it. Previously they said they want to call me and the whole T-Team but I was informed that until yesterday, none of them were being called to give any statements again,” he added.
The FAM made the decision last Tuesday that the JDT will only be fined RM 30,000 for failing to provide inadequate security during their clash against T-Team on the 1st of February.
During their match, the whole T-Team squad returned home after the half-time intermission, as they claimed that their players and staff were assaulted by the highest official of JDT. Police reports were made by both sides and the FAM have said that they will let the police handle the case.
