VALORANT Challengers Malaysia & Singapore (MY/SG) has announced the provisional suspension of Wong "JAYH" Jia Heng, citing "suspicion of participating in match-fixing" prior to the player's involvement in the league.

JayH has publicly denied these allegations and claims not to have been contacted before the announcement. The suspension is effective immediately and includes all Riot Games esports activities.

Investigation and compliance review

In an announcement on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), VALORANT Challengers MY/SG shared some limited details on the investigation that led to the player's suspension until further notice.

JayH, who previously played for the esports organisations Bleed Esports and Ninjas In Pyjamas, is alleged to have possibly partaken in match-fixing before joining the regional league with Disguised.

"Following a thorough compliance review, it has been determined that a member of team disguised, Wong 'JAYH' Jia Heng, is under suspicion of participating in match-fixing," the announcement stated.

Riot Games has suspended the Singaporean player from all official and third-party tournaments pending further actions, stating that "we will not tolerate any form of cheating, manipulation, or intentional disruption of fair play."

The announcement shared that the alleged rule infliction came to light with the help of the VALORANT community, as members allegedly brought the matter to the organisers' attention.

While the official statement of the league claims to have conducted a thorough compliance review, JayH stated that he had allegedly not been contacted before the announcement of his suspension but was only reached out to after his complaint on Twitter.

"These allegations will hurt my reputation severely, especially since no due diligence was done in even contacting me to investigate beforehand," the player shared in a quote reply to the announcement, asking league staff to get in contact with him to resolve the matter.

Approximately an hour after his initial statement, JayH replied that staff had now reached out to him, claiming to do his best to assist in the investigation. Disguised hasn't responded to the situation publicly yet, possibly because the announcement occurred outside the Los Angeles-based team's office hours.
