KUALA LUMPUR, March 6 (Bernama) -- Former Kuala Lumpur player Hafizi Roslee who was banned for life by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) due to his alleged involvement in match-fixing and bribery, has filed a suit against the FAM.
Hafizi, 29, who filed the suit on Feb 26 through Khairuddin, Ngiam & Tan at the High Court Registrar here, named FAM and the Kuala Lumpur Football Association (KLFA) as the first and second defendants, respectively.
His lawyer Kevin De Rozario said the court had set March 17 for case management in the presence of Judicial Commissioner Rosilah Yop.
In his writ of summon, Hafizi urged the court to nullify FAM's decision to ban him for life from football activities.
Hafizi alleged that the FAM's action was unconstitutional and done without arbitrary which was a breach of the rules of natural justice and public policy since the FAM had heard his case on Dec 20, last year without his presence.....
