A COUP BY BAM?

With their failure to get legitimate votes and backing for Dato Nadzmi Salleh for election as President of the BWF, the so called powerful officials have now staged a coup but dethroning the BAC President and installing the Malaysian as President.

Read on the BAC Press Release here and note the Malaysian presence in the picture. Suffice to say that the entire process was illegal, contrary to the BAC regulations, which ironically is registered in Malaysia.

Hence it’s no surprise that a legal challenge has been initiated by a BAC member country in Malaysia and the matter is pending in the High Court.

This is a shameful act to the nation, and such matters must be dealt with by the Sports Minister.

BAM ignores poor performance by its players and never hold any inquiries on the Europe Disaster of their players but convened a BAM Exco Meeting last Friday to discuss plans on this coup.

Such a despicable act that shames the nation ought to be highlighted.
