BANGKOK: The International Sepak Takraw Federation (Istaf) has withdrawn the charges against three Malaysian players who had allegedly skipped a dope test during Thailand King's Cup Sepaktakraw World Championship in Bangkok last year.

Istaf secretary-general Datuk Abdul Halim Kader who is also the chairman of the Disciplinary Panel made the announcement after chairing a meeting Wednesday.

"The charges against the three reserve players under Istaf's Doping Rule Article 2.3 has been withdrawn," he said here, Wednesday but did not say why the charges were withdrawn.

The three players are Ahmad Aizat Mohd Nor Azmi, Mohd Khairol Zaman Hamir Akhbar and Aidil Aiman Azwawi.

The Istaf discipline panel meeting was held at the Olympic Council of Thailand and attended by senior officials of the Sepak Takraw Association of Malaysia (PSM), including president Datuk Ahmad Ismail.

Though the three players were acquitted of the charges by Istaf, they may face other charges, he said. – Bernama
