Asking for trouble

How would you feel if you have been sending several emails,letters, SMSs etc to a particular individual, body, organisation etc and no one bothers to reply?

That's what is happening between the Sports Ministry and Malaysian Athletics Body  (MAF).

MAF - or MAU (depending on which paper you read as the NSA themselves can't decide), have been sent numerous letters by the Ministry but not even a single reply.

Understandably, Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek is pist. 

"I'm annoyed by their attitude. This sort of attitude by them cannot be tolerated," he told me yesterday a Moto3 team launch yesterday. 

So how did this come about?

I asked him, his take on the MAF and their non-disclosure of the doping investigation they carried out last May to NSC.

Apparently, MAF are in a world of their own and think they are on top of everyone.

Now I know why their president Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim is always evasive. Eh if you can't answer a question or solve an issue, then pls STEP DOWN!

Btw Shahidan said this during the National Sports Council - MAF programme launch ceremony yesterday. "If  don't answer or respond that means I accept that we are wrong" - mind you this was referring to responding to my fellow journalists and not letters by the Ministry


Anyway MAF is walking a thin line as appeared on Mailsport today.

For those who have not been following this closely, my colleague Haresh Deol has it all on Foul!
