The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) confirmed Lee sent them a letter appealing last weeks' ban, handed down after the world number seven decided to quit the body and go independent. "We are fully aware of the outpouring anger and frustration, and we truly understand the disappointment expressed towards the association," it said in a statement. PM Lee said in a Facebook post on Saturday that he dropped by two locations - Teck Ghee Block 323 and condominium Grandeur 8 - and spoke with residents on how they coped and adapted to the pandemic. BAM added it was"looking into the matter with great urgency" to find an"amicable" resolution. "My belief is that will provide the kind of social discourse that we really need to foster proactively in a society where you might see social economic divide, beginning to strain and pull apart," he said during a panel discussion at the Singapore Perspectives 2022 forum organised by the Institute of Policy Studies. The group faced a flood of complaints following the move to bar Lee, 23, from all games sanctioned by the Badminton World Federation, meaning it could stop him from competing at all. PM Lee thanked her and other front-line workers battling the virus for their service. It said it tried to persuade him to stay with the body, but could not agree to his demands which included having his own team of coaches and support staff. Trust was one of the elements he highlighted, alongside stewardship and collective action.
