Rogue #21

Another crook made it to my Rogues’ Gallery – number 21!

Yesterday, Zahrah Abd Wahab Fenner, the former chief executive of the Companies Commission of Malaysia, claimed trial to 33 corruption and abetment charges amounting to RM5.71 million. 

Her son, Abdulazeez Wan Ruslan (center), was also charged at the same Sessions Court – on four counts of corruption and abetment amounting to RM160,000. 

Both mother and son will face trial together as their cases are related. Judge Azura Alwi set bail at RM300,000 for Zahrah and RM70,000 for Abdulazeez.

A nerve-wrecking game to watch. I’m referring to yesterday’s Champions League Group E match between Liverpool and FC Red Bull Salzburg – and we needed to win this one! 

We lost to Napoli in our maiden European outing of the season, remember? 

The score at half-time was 3-1 in our favor but the Austrian side battled back to 3-3 before Mohamed Salah grabbed the winner in the sixty-ninth minute.

We really started well though. 

Sadio Mane (who once played for Salzburg for two seasons) struck in the ninth minute, after a gorgeous one-two with Roberto Firmino to sweep home at the near post. And in the twenty-fifth minute, Andrew Robertson turned in a cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold before Salah poked a third under keeper Cican Stanokovic eleven minutes later. 

But the other side staged a stunning fightback to put in three goals. 

Of course, our Man of the Match was Salah who got us over the line when he latched on to Roberto Firmino's header and scored with a sure-fire strike. And we won 4-3. 

Next up for the Reds is the visit of in-form Leicester on Saturday afternoon – they could drop their first Premier League points of the season if they don’t improve.
