Singapore silat chief: I want apology from chairwoman of the Singapore Sports Awards, Jessie Phua, for ‘demoralising’ remark

Yahoo! Sports Singapore, 14 Jun 2013
A source told Yahoo! Singapore that on the night of the awards held on Tuesday, Sheik – incensed by the comment – had approached Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong to “demand” an apology from Phua.
When contacted, Sheik said that he was “just telling (Minister Wong) how the silat community was unhappy, hurt, down and low in morale” as a result of Phua’s remark.
The silat chief, himself a two-time Sportsman of the Year nominee and former world champion, confirmed he wanted Phua to "apologise to the community”. Full story
