There are still no answers on the incident that happened in Larkin Stadium, despite the incident having happened over a month ago in the match between Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) and T-Team.

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) have issued a letter to the Johor Football Association (JFA) under the disciplinary code of 28.1, which is failure to control the safety of the officials and players during the game.

JFA has revealed that they replied to the FAM's letter within six days by submitting the B form, in which they pleaded not guilty in regards to the incident.

The investigation is now under the President of the disciplinary committee, Datuk Taufek Abdul Razak, but until today there is still no new progress or updates regarding the issue.

According to Taufek, he cannot comment on the Larkin incident issue but insisted that they will discuss other issues related to JDT.

Speaking to Utusan, Taufek stated that “I cannot comment on the issue. This Friday we will discuss about JDT, but on another issue such as flares incident as well as racism incident involving Pablo Aimar. We will let you know the dates in regards to the Larkin incident on that day.”

Reports suggested that they will discuss the issues for two days starting on the 24th of March, whereby the event occurred on the 1st February last month.

During that day, T-Team players did not go out onto the pitch for the second half, and the whole squad returned to Terengganu claiming that their player and official had been assaulted by the highest official of JFA.
