I am a victim — Zulfadli reacts to lengthy BWF punishment
Zulfadli Zulkiffli insisted that he was innocent after he was barred from all badminton activities for 20 years by the Badminton World Federation (BWF).

Despite pleading his innocence and attending a hearing session in Singapore in February, the Malaysian shuttler as well as Tan Chun Seang were found guilty of being involved in match-fixing.

Following the verdict, the 2011 world junior champion told Astro Arena that he would appeal against the decision.

"For me, the BWF's decision is wrong and baseless, so I will make an appeal as I am unhappy to be accused without any proof.

"I had gone to Singapore the other day to prove my innocence, but the BWF still deemed that I am guilty.

"I am a victim, not an accused. For now, I will not comment any further, but I might release a statement in the next few days," he said.
