Alegeh confirmed the NBA's standing alongside the Federal Government's stance in fighting corruption but warned that it would not support the act of taking what belonged to one man to give to another man.
"Any attempt to fight corruption with backhand tactics will mean using corruption to fight corruption. If the fight against corruption is to collect what belongs to one man and give it to another man, then count us, the NBA out," Alegeh said.
He also criticised the conflicting judgments handed down by the judiciary on similar matters saying that the NBA was left embarrassed by the developments.
