2020/21 Season: 3 Referees Axed From List Of Officials Set To Undertake Fitness Tests
Referee Alphonso Atiapa, Referee Desmond Abbey and Assistant Referee John Nyavor have been referred to the GFA Ethics Committee by the GFA Integrity Officer.
This follows a report from the Referees Committee on a case of allegedly receiving an offer from a football club during the cancelled league season.
After conducting investigations into the case by Integrity Officer, the matter has been forwarded to the Ethics Committee for adjudication.
Consequently, the three Match Officials involved have therefore been omitted from the List of Referees expected to undergo fitness tests ahead of the 2020/21 football season.
They would be given the opportunity to go through the fitness tests later if they are cleared by the Ethics Committee.
Also, Referee Daniel Kwame Nsiah, whose case is also before the Ethics Committee is also excluded from the List in accordance with the regulations.
Meanwhile, Referee Nathan Anafo has been included in the List of Referees set to undergo the fitness tests after being exonerated by FIFA Disciplinary Committee from allegations captured in the Anas exposé video.
