No decision reached yet on Megat’s breach of MHC rules

In hot water: Megat (right) is currently under suspension from all hockey activities.

PETALING JAYA: Kuala Lumpur Hockey Association (KLHA) president Datuk Seri Megat D. Shahriman Zaharudin has escaped sanction for breaching two code of conduct cases – for now.

The Malaysian Hockey Confed-eration (MHC) executive board met on Saturday but could not come to a conclusion on the cases against Megat.

Megat is currently under suspension from all hockey activities for breaking MHC’s code of conduct over making statements to the press and sponsors about the Malaysian Hockey League (MHL) prize money.

He was also alleged to have not followed the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOP) during the KL and Negri Sembilan match in the closed door Razak Cup competition at the National Hockey Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Sept 19.

MHC president Datuk Seri Subahan Kamal said that no decision was made as the disciplinary committee chairman Datuk T. Thavalingam could not attend the meeting as he was unwell.

“Both cases were discussed. We could not make a decision as the reports are not ready. But I would like to state here that the MHC are governed by rules and regulations and “Cowboy” rules have no place in our set-up, ” said Subahan.

“The disciplinary committee could not come to a conclusion and present their case as Datuk T. Thavalingam is not feeling well.

“On his second case of breaching the SOP during the Razak Cup, competitions committee chairman Datuk Seri Anil Jeet Singh will hand in his report next week.”
