However, the Referees Association has now taken the decision to suspend all referees who were caught up taking bribes.

A statement from the Association, signed by General Secretary Joseph Ayita Mensah, said all referees, together with assistant referees, caught up in the documentary will no longer be appointed for any matches.

“All referees and assistant referees who appeared in the Anas exposé should not be appointed for any football match,” sections of the statement read.

It added that RAG is making efforts to secure a copy of the video from the Tiger Eye PI for study and also to enable them to take all the necessary actions against the named referees.

Meanwhile, all football activities in the country have been suspended, with government seeking an injunction from court to restrain all activities of the GFA.
