The Chairman of the Integrity of the Football of Malaysia (FAM), Tan Sri Aseh Che Mat said that until now no officials prosecuted for the corruption.

He welcomed any party to come forward and lodge report or complainant or anyone who has information or evidence to the authorities if true corruption occurs.

"Do not worry all about identity and security that remain safe, I promise," he said.

FAM secretary-general Datuk Hamidin Mohd. Amin will keep monitoring every game to avoid any element of corruption. So far they have collaborated with the Malaysia's Anti-Corruption Commision (MACC) to curb corruption from spreading back in the local football league.

They promise to act immediately if receive authentic information on corruption and not hesitate to take action in accordance with existing regulations.
