Petition urging BAM to lift Lee Zii Jia and Goh Jin Wei’s ban receives 100,000 signatures within 2 days

Meanwhile, a separate petition calling for BAM's top management to resign was launched as well.

After BAM announced its decision to ban top shuttler Lee Zii Jia and Goh Jin Wei from taking part in international tournaments for two years, Malaysians have voiced their strong dissatisfaction over the ruling and have poured out their support for the two athletes.

In the petition’s description, it hailed Lee and Goh as heroes who contributed to the nation and said that the people around the world were against BAM’s decision.

Lee Zii Jia and Goh Jin Wei are known well  with their masterpiece talent and achievements for Malaysia, banning them for 2 years from the tournaments is not making sense at all.

“We (Malaysians) know and believe in [these] 2 players that they can give the biggest achievement in Malaysia…we will never stop supporting them and all the people around the world are against BAM’s decision.”
