PUTRAJAYA — April 14, 2017: Former national footballer Khairul Anuar Baharum today surrendered to the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in relation to allegations of match-fixing in the Premier League.

Khairul Anuar, 43, also known as Ah Chong, arrived at the MACC headquarters here in the morning accompanied by a lawyer.

He looked surprise to see journalists there. The press was actually waiting for Parti Keadilan Rakyat vice-president Rafizi Ramli who was expected to submit a report to the agency.

It is learnt that MACC arrested Khairul Anuar in the afternoon after recording his statement.

MACC’s deputy chief commissioner (Operations) Datuk Azam Baki confirmed the arrest.

Last Wednesday, three Malaysian Indian Football Association players were released on MACC bail after being
remanded for six days for alleged match-fixing, while the remand order for another, said to be a bookie, was extended until April 17.

Khairul Anuar, who used to play for Selangor and Negri Sembilan, is expected to be taken to court tomorrow for a remand order to be applied. — Bernama
