A public inquest to how the FA's 'Fit and Proper Persons' test failed to prevent Carson Yeung buying Birmingham City FC.

The FA's 'Fit and proper persons' test failed to stop Carson Yeung purchasing Birmingham City Football Club.

Nobody knew anything about Carson Yeung, not even in Hong Kong. The only thing the media knew about him was that he was a hair stylist. So why was he allowed to purchase Birmingham City FC? How did the FA come to a decision that he had the funds to run a football club sustainably? 

Carson Yeung is now facing money laundering charges in Hong Kong and his trial has been ongoing for almost two years, his assets have been frozen and he has been selling Birmingham City FC's assets ever since.

As a result of the FA's decision, Birmingham city are on the brink of administration and are having to sell their assets just to stay in existence.

The fans of Birmingham City FC, and fans of football, want an inquiry to how Carson Yeung passed the FA's 'Fit and proper persons' test and was deemed to be capable of running a football club.
