Reference is made to the article in The Star dated 13 June 2018, “Future up in Smoke?”.

  • Both players involved in the alleged incident were called up for an inquiry by the Rules, Discipline and Integrity Committee on 1 June 2018.
  • Upon deliberation and based on BAM’s Standard Operating Procedure, the Committee was satisfied that the incident involved only Iskandar Zulkarnain. The Committee sanctioned Iskandar Zulkarnain a one-time 50% fine of his monthly allowance.
  • Following that, the recent Coaching & Training Committee meeting has also decided that all players will undergo nicotine testing from time to time and any player tested positive will be severely dealt with.
