The Executive Committee upheld the Review Panel’s recommendation to caution referee Ibrahim after the panel observed reviewed the video of the match between Unity FC and Mighty Royals to ascertain whether the referee had denied Unity FC three clear penalties in the 35th, 47th, 66th and 72nd minutes of the match.
