SOMEONE'S LYING: Not Rosmah, not Ena - so who is Chong Wei's mystery woman?

SOMEONE'S LYING: Not Rosmah, not Ena - so who is Chong Wei's mystery woman?
KUALA LUMPUR - The mystery over the identity of the VIP woman in the ongoing Datuk Lee Chong Wei Badminton World Federation “cordyceps doping” saga has deepened and this has heightened the agitation of the national player.
Constantly at the receiving end of the barrage of SMSes and incessant phone ringing, Chong Wei’s circle of trainers, coaches and confidants are now perturbed.
“We never expected this turn of events… the concern is now whether he is mentally prepared for the long tournament calendar ahead.”
Yesterday, the national sports icon was quoted to have cleared the air over the misconception that the Prime Minister’s wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, was the VIP in question in a report published by Star Online.
Meanwhile, today, he has also cleared Toh Puan Ena Ling, the wife of former Transport Minister Tun Ling Liong Sik, who is also known to the former two-time Olympics silver medallist, as reported by Star Online, which was quoting China Press.
“Just when we all thought we could heave a sigh of relief… this has now turned controversial,” a sports official, who sought anonymity, disclosed.
“The eight-month ban is to be lifted tomorrow, yet the dust does not seem to have settled, but has instead turned more cloudy and murky.”
The BWF findings (www.bwfbadminton.org) brought to light how the badminton stalwart fingered a VIP’s wife as the individual who provided him the cordycep capsules.

What further raised eyebrows was the “in camera” behind closed doors manner the testimony was delivered, akin to a whistleblower.
He declined to identify the wife fearing consequences for her if she was associated with the case.
The revelations coming out from the report now have put behind the “doping” scandal, but has brought to light the inconsistencies in the testimony.
To further add to the controversy, the sinseh who ground the cordyceps and packed them in capsules could be facing a hefty fine, if charges were to be preferred.
“Sinsehs and those handling Chinese traditional medicine (capsule or pills) need the approval of the Ministry of Health and should closely adhere to good manufacturing practices.
“This (vacuum packing) is to protect consumer safety; doing it yourself at home is prohibited,” president of the Federation of Chinese Physicians and Acupuncturists Associations Malaysia Prof Ng Po Kok said.
Those who flout ministry regulations are liable to a fine not exceeding RM25,000. - FMT
