Ex-AFC official faces charges over Bin Hammam probe

Kuala Lumpur:

The former Asian Football Confederation finance director and her husband have been charged with stealing a file related to a corruption probe into the AFC's suspended president Mohamed bin Hammam.

Kong Lee Toong, husband of Amelia Gan, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to stealing the file from the AFC office on July 31. Gan, who is outside Malaysia, is expected to be charged when she returns.

Prosecutor Kee Wei Lon said the file contained documents related to bin Hammam's personal banking transactions.

Bin Hammam, who is fighting allegations of financial malfeasance and corruption, has insisted the claims were politically motivated.
