It has been suggested that the captain had lost his medical.
Lost or suspended? I very much doubt that any pilot, regardles of ethnicity, would operate an aircraft without a valid Class 1 medical certificate. You can have your medical certificate suspended for many reasons and varying periods. Changing your blood pressure medication for instance, comes with a month of suspension and is re-issued after a satisfactory medical clearance.
