Mr. Aryitey Y. Mensah, General Secretary of the Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) has appealed to Tiger Eye PI to make available the full video for the Executives of his Association. This would enable the Executives of RAG to issue the respective punishments to the culprits who are part of the Association.
Speaking on Boss FM on Friday mid- morning sports show,Mr. Aryitey emphasised the readiness of his outfit to cleanse the Association of members, who engaged in series of misconducts, contrary to the professional ethics in the famous “Anas Expose”.
“Up till date, we are yet to establish who and who amongst our members were involved in the scandal, some say its 77 referees, others 65 and so on, therefore we need to establish the facts related to the issue before we can make any concrete decision”, Mr. Mensah said.
The RAG Secretary continued thus,”To get to the bottom of the issues, we have requested for a copy of the video since 17th June 2018, with reminders to Tiger Eye Pi, but unfortunately we are yet to receive a copy of the full details of the documentary and the list of the alleged corrupt referees for the cleaning exercise immediately”.
“We believe that the motive of Tiger Eye PI was to help RAG to eradicate corrupt referees from the system and if they could not assist RAG with a detailed copy of the footage or documents that can help the Association sanction members found culpable of the corrupt acts, then Tiger Eye PI has not only done disservice to only RAG, but to the nation as a whole.
“We therefore pray that Tiger Eye Pi would deemed it necessary to provide us with a detailed copy of the video as requested to enable us have enough evidence to support any action to be taken,” He added.
He concluded that ”The Ghana Police Service, CID Headquarters invited RAG for a meeting where the Association was looking forward to receive the details of the documentary (images) and list of the alleged corrupt referees. The documentary was not given to RAG but a list containing few names of alleged corrupt Referees was given with the explanation that more would be added as and when investigation continue”.
