Hockeyacadeny President Faces DB

So what is the verdict of the disciplinary hearing against KL Hockey Association President Dato Megat D. Shahriman?

Megat faced the Disciplinary Board on Saturday, accompanied by a lawyer.

He was in all likelihood charged with bringing the game to disrepute for his statements on the prize money for the Malaysian Hockey League

Also charged as fait accompli was the Kuala Lumpur Hockey Association.

It is not right to question the reasoning of justification of the charges, but suspending Megat even before a hearing is mala fide or in bad faith.

Megat was told that he remains suspended until a decision by the Disciplinary Board.

So much so that at the KL Veteran’s tournament last weekend he was formally introduced as the Malaysian Paralympic Council President as not as President at his associations own event.

A red carded player remains suspended until a hearing which must be held within 14 days.

Abd in the demerit point system he serves his automatic suspension unless referred to the DB by the Technical Committee.

Interestingly no one knows who referred Megat or which clause was used.

Surely not the code of conduct as it ends after the final whistle if the competition.

So we just have to wait a week or so to see what Megat receives as additional punishment as he has already been serving the sentence even before being found guilty.

Perhaps a remission given he has served fine and been a good person during his interim sentencing.

Oh well, wonder why no one write this despite being public knowledge.

And let’s be clear, I did not speak a word to Megat in this matter as he is suspended.

Anyway all the best to Megat!S detractors in KLHA, one foresees an early election forthcoming there.
