Hie Sir/Mdm/Miss,

I, Adrian Lee Yung Khin, a student from Multimedia University, Malaysia, taking Bachelor of Law, would like to enquire certain issues upon the title mentioned above.

I'm doing this regarding to my assignment given to my group and I. We were assigned TO INTERPRET RELEVANT SPORTS LAW PROVISIONS TOGETHER WITH DECIDED CASES ON THE SUBJECT OF MONEY LAUNDERING WITH AN EMPHASIS ON THE UK AND MALAYSIAN LAWS IN RESPONSE TO THE LATEST FINANCIAL ACTION TASK FORCE (FATF) RECOMMENDATIONS.

If there isn't any specific provision in sports law which regard to money laundering, what are your recommendation on enacting a provision or a law which is relevant to money laundering in sports law.

Your reply is much appreciated.

Regards,
Adrian Lee Yung Khin
