Two Asante Kotoko players, Amos Frimpong and Ernest Sowah, who were said to have attacked referee in the match against Edubiase, have been cleared of charges against them by the Ghana FA Disciplinary Committee.
Kotoko succumbed to a disappointing 2-1 defeat. Subsequently, the referee wrote in his report that, he was attacked by two players – Amos Frimpong, Ernest Sowah.
But the Disciplinary Committee ruled that the two were not guilty, dismissing charges.
On Amos Frimpong, the ruling said the committee was “Satisfied with the video evidence before it, that, the actions of Amos Frimpong after the final whistle of the match do not amount to a breach of regulations. The evidence does not support the charge” – the result of which the charges were dismissed.
On Ernest Sowah, the committee pointed out that, it “Considered all the evidence and holds that once the referee (against whom the offence occurred) was of the opinion that, the offence deserved only a yellow card as punishment; the Disciplinary Committee shall decline the invitation for further punishment”.
