Happy New Year 2015 & TQ for Giving Publicity to MCFwatch.

MCFwatch wishes the chess community a Happy New Year 2015 wishing that corruption and abuses of power in MCF stops. MCFwatch also wishes that more information on abuses of power is submitted to so that the culprits are exposed.

MCFwatch would like to thank the Raymond Siew's FirstGM blog (Read the 16/12/2014 post here) and prolific chess organiser Stonemaster Fadli for highlighting this blog to the chess community.

Ever since their publicity, MCFwatch had received more than 1,000 visitors from 14 countries i.e. Malaysia, USA, Canada, Singapore, Hungary, Australia, UAE, Cambodia, India, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Philippines.

Make that 3(THREE) DATUKS Shortchanged by MCF.

After the 2 Datuks post on 17/12 were discussed during the weekend action in Klang Valley competitions, Information came in that another Datuk was shortchanged i.e Datuk Zuhri who ran for MCF President previously.

Apparently, he had contributed  a certain amount of money to MCF for the development of chess and chess players in Malaysia.

However, instead of using the contributed money for development the money was instead used to pay the claims submitted by 2 MCF officials.

It is no wonder there's no incremental development for chess in Malaysia when money contributed is being siphoned off in one "scam" or another and 1 name keeps popping up. Gues Who?

2 DATUKS Got the Short End of the Stick.

Yesterday MCFwatch received an email highlighting the fact that 2 Datuks have been shortchanged by MCF. Have MCF No SHAME?

CASE 1 - DATUK TAN (x-MCF President). Amount: RM12,500
Datuk Tan was shortchanged RM12,500 by MCF when money he had lent to update MCF standings with FIDE was never repaid despite the amount being withdrawn from MCF accounts.

CASE 2 - DATUK EDMUND (x-MCF Dep. President &KLCA President) Amount:RM3,000++
Datuk Edmund donated the amount of RM3k++ to MCF with the proviso that the money be given to immediately after the event as a reward/incentive to Malaysian players scoring in the Malaysia-Singapore friendly. Apparently, the amount was only given to the deserving players more than a year after the friendly which defeats the purpose.

Please email to if anybody have further info on the above matters.

More Examples of Abuses - No Supporting Documents.

Fast forward from 1st Johor Open to 6th Penang Open and more examples of abuses of power were overheard by this blog during the competition from players and parents alike. Most of them were examples of payment delays and money disappearing. However, no documents were sighted so MCFwatch can't publish the claims.

MCFwatch will only publish examples if we receive documented evidence.

MCF Rewards Corruption???

Refer BiroCaturWanitaMCF blog

The HOT news being talked about on the first day of the 1st Johor Open currently ongoing is that the MCF Council have taken leave of their senses.

Instead of suspending the official who is regularly stealing money in one scam or another they have instead decided to give him a post. The saying if you can't beat them, join them comes to mind.

Perhaps Peter Long was right after all, ALL CROOKS - ALL MUST GO!
