KUALA LUMPUR: The Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) are looking into helping their former secretary general, Datuk Sieh Kok Chi, whose disabled daughter has allegedly become a victim of property fraud.
OCM president Tan Sri Norza Zakaria said the umbrella body sympathise with Kok Chi and his daughter, Shen-Nern.
Kok Chi recently discovered that Shen-Nern's share of a shop lot - jointly purchased with a former national athlete -had been transferred to the latter without their knowledge.
"We have been talking informally with him (Kok Chi) and are aware of the issues he is facing at the moment," said Norza.
"This is, however, a legal case, so it is best to leave it to the authorities (to investigate).
"But as someone who has contributed so much to the sports industry, especially OCM, we will look to help him as best as we can (in other ways)."
Kok Chi, who has been battling respiratory problems recently, served as OCM honorary secretary and secretary general between 1992-2015.
On a separate note, Norza disclosed that Datuk Hamidin Amin will no longer be the Vietnam Sea Games Chef de Mission as the latter has other things to attend to.
Hamidin was originally appointed as CDM in March before the biennial regional games were postponed to next year. He has been replaced by Datuk Nur Azmi Ahmad.
Hamidin is now in charge of the OCM relocation project task force. "He is also tasked with looking at marketing and sponsorship for OCM," said Norza.
