Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) has sanctioned the referees culpable in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas investigative piece.
RAG finally brought their investigation to an end as they followed it up by sanctioning referees guilty in the Anas video. This was after a full-scale investigation was launched into the matter.
The RAG statement reads: ”After Anas expose #12 RAG set up a five member committee to investigate the conduct of 75 referees whose names and pictures appeared in the expose. The committee started work on 20/8/18 and submitted their written report to RAG on 8/9/18. RAG upon the receipt of the report had RAG Executive meeting on 15/9/18 under 34 (b) (v) and approved the following recommendations
”14 referees were exonerated as there was no evidence whatsoever that they accepted any money as alleged.
”61 were found guilty and had been suspended for 10 years each, out of the 61, 8 of them have been banned for life.”
The Confederation of African football (CAF) has already issued bans to ten Ghanaian officials in relation to the Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ number 12 expose.
