THE National Sports Council (NSC) and the national shooting squad's team manager for the Kuala Lumpur Sea Games, Datuk Sabiamad Abdul Ahad have chosen to ignore the demands of national shooters Nur Ayuni Farhana Abdul Halim and Muslifah Zulkifli.
At the end of the 24-hour period set by the two shooters on Friday, both the NSC and Sabiamad decided to stand their ground and make no further comments, while efforts to contact the National Shooting Association of Malaysia (NSAM) were in vain.
On Thursday, Nur Ayuni and Muslifah had demanded an apology from all three parties - the NSC, Sabiamad and the NSAM - for allegedly accusing them of having disciplinary issues, which resulted in the duo being dropped from the biennial Games' squad.
The NSC director general Datuk Shapawi Ahmad when contacted, refused to comment, saying: "I don't wish to say anything because I have met the two of them. They understand clearly, therefore there is no need for me to comment further."
Meanwhile, Sabiamad claimed that no accusations were made against the two shooters in the first place, and that they were only acting based on their feelings.
Nur Ayuni and Muslifah had earlier threatened to take legal action against all three - the NSC, Sabiamad and the NSAM - should they fail to meet their demands.
