Aminuddin gets extra three-month ban

KUALA LUMPUR: Pahang’s Mohamed Aminuddin Abu has been handed an additional three-month ban for breaching his two-year suspension for a doping offence.

Aminuddin, who played for Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) in the Premier Division of the Malaysia Hockey League (MHL) in 2011, had tested positive for a recreational drug during a random test and was banned for two years by the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC).

His suspension was due to end on Oct 12, 2013 but he was caught playing for Pahang in the Razak Cup in September.

He was thrown out of the tournament and referred to the MHC’s disciplinary board for further action. The Pahang HA were also hauled up.

After almost three months, MHC ruled last week that Aminuddin should be given a further three-month ban.

The Pahang HA were given a warning and told not to repeat the offence.

MHC secretary general Datuk Johari Abdul Aziz said the disciplinary board only managed to clear the case last week.

“We are now in the process of informing the player and the ban will start when he receives our letter. The disciplinary board took into view some mitigating factors and felt that the three-month ban is sufficient,” he added.

Aminuddin was not the only player who was banned for the doping offence in 2011. Two others – Abdul Hakim and Mohd Hafiz Nawi – were caught for a similar offence and served out their suspensions, which ended on Oct 21 last year.
