ANAS NUMBER 12 EXPOSÈ LEADS TO THE SUSPENSION OF 74 REFEREES

A couple of months after ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas premiered his #Number12 expose on corruption in Ghana football, seventy-four (74) referees and assistants including retired officials have been ‘provisionally suspended’ by the Referees Association of Ghana (RAG).

In a press release signed by Deputy General Secretary, Sampson Kwao and dated August 4th, 2018 RAG mentioned that those officials have been ‘provisionally suspended’ pending investigations by the disciplinary committee of RAG.

In an interview with Diamond Sports on Sunday, Sampson Kwao said the decision to provisionally suspend the officials is not entirely dependent on what the Confederations of African Football (CAF) did earlier in July.

He added that it was important to maintain the status of the association, hence this decision.

However, some officials are adamant they are part of the said video. This, Sampson said is open for discussion until the said officials are exonerated by the associations’ disciplinary committee. Below is the full statement from RAG:
