Hannah Yeoh: Youth and Sports Ministry to ensure Faisal Halim receives free treatment at National Sports Institute

SEPANG, May 7 — The Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) will ensure Harimau Malaya stalwart Mohamad Faisal Abdul Halim, better known as Faisal Halim, receives the best treatment for free at the National Sports Institute (NSI) in appreciation of the 26-year-old’s priceless contributions to the country.

Its minister, Hannah Yeoh said they will ensure that the footballer receives the necessary support and treatment throughout his recuperation period, which is expected to take months.

“KBS wants to provide support to Faisal Halim (through the) NSI (which) will provide whatever services, including physiotherapy, required for free to ensure he fully recovers quickly.

“I want to tell him he is appreciated not only by the government but that all Malaysians are praying for his quick recovery,” she said.

She told reporters this after witnessing the exchange of memorandum of understanding (MoU) documents between the KBS and the Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) with MAG Group managing director Datuk Capt Izham Ismail at the Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) Academy here today.

While strongly condemning the heinous attack on the Selangor FC wing wizard, Hannah also that no one deserved to be treated like that. “That is why I want to make sure the police take stern action against the suspect(s) to discover the motive behind the attack. Otherwise, I fear it may happen to others… the investigation by the police is extremely crucial.
