Low Denies Conspiracy In OCM

KUALA LUMPUR, April 17 (Bernama) -- Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) vice-president Low Beng Choo has denied that there is a conspiracy involving four key officials in the country's sports parent body.

However, Low did not deny that she had held an unofficial discussion with OCM president Tan Sri Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar, deputy president Datuk Dr M. Jegathesan and honorary secretary Datuk Sieh Kok Chi but the discussion was not aimed at forming a pact between them.

Sieh was yesterday reported to have claimed that there was a pact between the four key officials in the OCM to avoid contests in the election at the OCM's annual general meeting on May 30.

"I don't know what is meant by the pact which was alleged by Sieh and I don't intend to comment further on the matter," said Low when contacted by Bernama, today.

Low was earlier said to have planned to contest the post held by Sieh since 1992, and was said to have received the blessing of the National Sports Council (NSC) to the extent that there was speculation that NSC Director-General Datuk Zolkples Embong was supporting her in the contest.

Low said the allegation that she had the support of the NSC to contest the post of OCM honorary secretary was not true.

Low said she had not decided whether to contest for the 'hot seat' in the OCM because to date, her name had yet to be nominated by anyone.
