As the case between Royal AM and anybody else continues to rumble on, the KZN-based club has said it will not be attending the PSL Disciplinary hearing scheduled for Saturday the 17th of July.
The club was charged by the PSL for failing to attend their Promotion/Relegation Playoffs games and are supposed to appear before the Disciplinary Committee. This is not going to happen, according to the club.
“We went to court and the verdict will be announced at a later stage, so why should we attend the DC,” club CEO, Sink Mnisi told media publication, FARPost on Friday morning.
The league prosecution department is said to be pushing for the harshest sentence possible for Royal AM, with a recommendation for the club to be expelled not being ruled out.
Royal AM also filed papers to have the acting CEO of PSL, Mato Madlala be held in contempt of court for allowing the playoffs to go ahead despite an earlier court judgement that suspended the games until Royal AM’s appeal process had been finalised. It is the interpretation of this Judge Nyathi ruling that has brought the PSL and Royal AM into a legal shootout right before the start of a new season.
The GladAfrica championship trophy is yet to be officially handed over and fixtures for the 2021/2 PSL season are not yet published.
