The Singapore Silat Federation (SSF) has lodged a police report against its finance director following allegations of irregular salary payments to certain coaches.
The finance director has since been suspended from duties.
It is not known what is the quantum of irregular payments involved which led to the police report being filed.
The SSF said on 25 February that it was told by government agency Sport Singapore about irregularities in the SSF’s financial practices, which revealed information that was “cause for serious concern” following checks.
