There is no news yet on the results of national shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei's B sample test, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said.
"I have no news about the result yet... If the result is out, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) will list the information on its system which can only be retrieved by BWF officials because there will be a password," Khairy said in a report by Bernama yesterday.
The minister added that the decision to engage a prominent sports lawyer to assist Chong Wei's doping case was not a special privilege accorded to the shuttler.
Khairy said the cost of engaging the services of the lawyer would be borne by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), not the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
