The Referees Association of Ghana has handed out bans to 61 referees captured in the Anas Aremeyaw Anas exposé released in June.
After the airing of the documentary, a 5-member committee was set up to look into the conduct of the 75 referees mentioned.
After their work, they recommended certain punishments and the recommendations have been implemented by the association.
61 referees were found guilty per committee’s work and they were punished as follows: 53 were given 10-year bans while 8 were given lifetime bans.
14 referees were exonerated completely.
Members of the Referees Association confirmed the punitive measures to Citi Sports but did not give any further comments saying that a statement would be released in the coming week.
