Hector Moreno named UEFA man of the match after breaking Luke Shaw’s leg



If the sight of Hector Moreno scoring the equaliser after breaking Luke Shaw’s leg in two places was not hard enough to stomach for Manchester United fans, the ultimate insult came at the end of their Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven.

Moreno was visibly shocked after his thumping tackle on Shaw left the United left-back with a double leg break when his trailing leg swept round and collided with Shaw’s right leg.

The Mexico international was not even booked for the incident, with United being awarded a corner, and he went on to draw his side level before Luciano Narsingh headed PSV into the lead for a 2-1 win.

Louis van Gaal described Moreno’s challenge as “a very bad tackle with two legs”, even if his leading leg did take the ball, while former referee Graham Poll wrote in the Daily Mail that “Moreno showed no regard for his opponent’s safety when he flew in to tackle Shaw … his leading leg might have touched the ball but the way he entered into the challenge – at pace and off the ground – he had no control over his actions.”

So it was with some bemusement that fans and journalists received the news that Moreno had in fact been named UEFA’s man of the match.

UEFA tried to explain their decision without making any reference to the Shaw incident.Their official match report described the incident in these terms though: “The visitors suffered an early blow when Luke Shaw was stretchered off after H├ęctor Moreno blocked his surge into the box.”

Kru kabin gemuk: Air India mahu ambil tindakan

Sumber dari Air India itu bagaimanapun memberitahu bahawa isu tersebut bukan tentang berat badan, tetapi kecergasan. - Gambar fail

NEW DELHI: Jurucakap rasmi Air India mendedahkan bahawa telah dikeluarkan arahan melalui dokumen dalaman syarikat penerbangan tersebut pada tahun lalu mengenai keadaan fizikal anak kapal yang tidak cergas.

Syarikat penerbangan itu telah mengeluarkan amaran kepada 600 anak kapalnya supaya kembali menjaga penampilan tubuh pada tahun lalu, namun seramai 125 orang tidak dapat kembali ke berat badan yang dikehendaki.

Portal berita BBC melaporkan, sumber dari Air India itu bagaimanapun memberitahu bahawa isu tersebut bukan tentang berat badan, tetapi kecergasan.

Pegawai dari syarikat penerbangan itu mengesahkan arahan tersebut telah dikeluarkan, namun ia merupakan dokumen dalaman yang tidak boleh diulas secara umum.

Mereka berkata, cadangan tersebut dibuat memandangkan terdapat kebimbangan sekiranya kru kabin yang tidak cergas tidak mampu bertindak dengan cekap sewaktu situasi kecemasan.

Peraturan penerbangan menetapkan bahawa Indeks Jisim Tubuh (BMI) 18-25 adalah normal untuk kru kabin lelaki, manakala untuk wanita adalah 18-22.

Pakar penerbangan Kapil Kaul berkata: “Kru yang berlebihan berat badan adalah isyarat bahawa syarikat penerbangan itu sendiri ‘tidak sihat’. Anda memerlukan anak kapal yang cergas, mesra dan bijak untuk membawa imej syarikat penerbangan.”

Bagaimanapun, ketua kesatuan sekerja Tapan Sen menafikan terdapat peraturan perkhidmatan yang menegaskan tentang hal berat badan.

Itu bukan kali pertama Air India mahu menggantung tugas pekerja kabinnya kerana isu berat badan berlebihan.

Pada tahun 2009, syarikat itu telah mencetus kontroversi apabila memecat sembilan pramugari kerana mereka sangat gemuk. Pemecatan itu dibuat dengan alasan keadaan fizikal itu 'boleh menjejaskan kecekapan' dalam tugas.

Pada 2004, syarikat penerbangan itu pernah dikecam ramai pihak apabila mengumumkan bahawa calon-calon pramugari tidak boleh mempunyai parut, jerawat atau sebarang tanda yang ketara di bahagian muka.

SUBANG JAYA: Polis menemui mayat Timbalan Ketua Bahagian Perbicaraan dan Rayuan Jabatan Peguam Negara, Anthony Kevin Morais dalam sebuah tong berisi konkrit di USJ Satu, Subang Jaya, pagi tadi.

Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Bukit Aman Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh, berkata, mayat Morais ditemui berikutan pengakuan beberapa suspek utama yang ditahan di dua lokasi berbeza pada Selasa di Pulau Pinang dan Lembah Klang.

"Jadi pada pagi di tempat ini kita telah mendapat bantan bomba, dan selepas tong drum ini dipecahkan kita menemui satu mayat yang kita percayai mendiang Kevin Morais, yang hilang.

"Walaupun bagaimanapun pengesahan tentang identiti sebenar akan dibuat apabila post mortem dijalankan petang ini oleh pathologist HKL (Hospital Kuala Lumpur). Kita jangkakan post mortem ini pada pukul 1.30 atau 2 petang," katanya pada sidang media, di sini, hari ini.

Katanya, mayat Morais dibawa ke Hospital Kuala Lumpur HKL untuk proses forensik dan pengesahan seterusnya.

Polis memaklumkan mayat tersebut dibawa ke Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL).

Tempat di mana mayat tersebut dijumpai.

Dalam pada itu, Mohmad turut menolak segala spekulasi yang mengaitkan kes ini dengan pembunuhan pengasas AmBank, Hussein Ahmad Najadi mahupun isu berkaitan 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

"Di sini kita hendak nafikan bahawa kehilangan dan kematian Morais tidak ada kena mengena langsung dengan spekulasi yang dibuat sebelum ini.," katanya.

Siasatan sejak 6 pagi tadi itu, dilakukan sepasukan pegawai dan anggota polis diketuai Pasukan Petugas Khas Jenayah Terancang (STAFOC) yang menjalankan pemeriksaan di USJ 1, bersama beberapa lelaki dipercayai suspek yang melarikan mangsa.

Police believe body found in Subang Jaya is Anthony Morais

SUBANG JAYA: Police believed they have found the body of missing-turn-abducted deputy public prosecutor, Anthony Kevin Morais, in Subang Jaya this morning.

Bukit Aman Criminal Investigation Department director, Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh said they found the body cemented in a drum barrel that was dumped in Jalan Subang 3 in USJ.

“After 13 days of investigation, we finally achieved a breakthrough in the case, much helped by new leads gathered recently including a CCTV footageobtained from Jalan Duta, KL.

“We got the help of the Fire and Rescue Department and pathologists to assist in the process of unearthing the body, which began around 8am today,” Mohmad told reporters at the scene.

However, he said, further identification process on the body will be carried out during the post-mortem by Kuala Lumpur Hospital pathologists around 2pm today.

The cement used to compress the body

Suspects arrested

Mohmad said the discovery of the body was made possible following the arrest of seven suspects in Rawang and other areas in the Klang Valley yesterday.

The police were then led to the swamp area where the body was dumped.

The body after it was unearthed

He said the police detained seven people – five men, a woman and a child – but they believed the woman and child have no involvement in the case.

“The men are aged between 22 and 52 years old. Among them, only one had a past criminal record under Section 29(1) of the Minor Offences Act 1955 for failure to provide explanation on goods owned.

“The rest of the suspects, we will check if they have been involved in any D7 or gangsterism activities,” said Mohmad, adding that police will apply to remand the suspects for the maximum period, 14 days, starting today.

Items seized

Mohmad said police had seized several items in connection with the case. The items were seized in Penang and the Klang Valley beginning yesterday.

Those seized in Penang included a Mitsubishi Triton vehicle, believed to be used to ram into the victim’s vehicle; a Honda Accord believed to be used by one of the suspects, and cash amounting to RM17,100.

In the Klang Valley, items seized were a Proton Persona owned by one of the suspects; cash totalling RM15,000, and a receipt for purchasing cement, gravel and sand. The hardware is believed to be the items used to compress the body in the drum barrel, said Mohmad.

The hardware were purchased in an area nearby where the body was dumped, he added.

Motive

Mohmad said the motive in this case is believed to be linked to a Shah Alam courts case two weeks ago involving a Malaysian military doctor embroiled in corruption.

“We believe Morais was the DPP involved in the case. His case has no relations to the Ambank founder's murder case that was speculated before,” he said.

To a question, Mohmad said the military doctor was among those arrested yesterday.

He added that more arrests will be made soon.

At the time of his death, Morais was the Appellate and Trial Division deputy chief of the Attorney-General's Chambers. Prior to that, he was with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

Morais was reported missing by his elder brother, Datuk Richard Morais, on Sept 5, a day after he was last seen.
