KARIM EXONERATED?

Has Karim Ibrahim been exonerated from being accused of having a hand in doping athletes?

There have been conflicting news on this as a senior sports official said that Karim has been singled out in the report by the inquiry led by Tan Sri VC George.

The report was made available to MAU President Dato Seri Shahidan Kassim, OCM President Tunku Tan Sri Imran Tuanku Jaafar and Karim himself this evening.

However Karim sounded relieved when he was contacted by this blog.

“I have handed the copy of the report to my lawyers and he will study to report in detail,” Karim told this blog exclusively.

“I will now concentrate on the MAU elections and am relieved that all this is over.

“I am not able to say anything more except for the fact that my lawyer advised me I have nothing to be concerned about.”

While not having access to the report, it is learnt that the panel had not made sufficient suggestions to improve towards non occurrence of such incidents.

It is also learnt that the written reports submitted by NSC Director General Dato Seri Zolkples Embong and Shahidan were not considered as the duo were unable to attend the inquiry in person thus not giving Karim an opportunity to cross examine them.

More details tomorrow as the saga is Karim guilty or not continues.

Will there be a closure? Only time will tell as all parties should move on towards the betterment of athletics in the country.
