The sports fraternity is abuzz with talk of sports officials, journalists and a newspaper being issued letter of demand by lawyers representing the National Sports Council.

Efforts to seek a response from the NSC Director General Dato Seri Zolkples Embong proved futile as SMS went unanswered.

It is learnt that the letter of demands state defamation of NSC and some are even on statements made in May 2011.

More details to follow as a clarification from the office of the Minister of Youth & Sports is also being sought to find out why NSC has resorted to such action.
