Becker makes decision on Sirino case

PSL Lockdown News

PSL prosecutor Nande Becker has made a big decision regarding Gaston Sirino's Disciplinary Committee case for assault.

The DC currently has pending cases to rule on including the assault charge against the Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, for which he has been found guilty.

"All DCs suspended until further notice. No Sirino sanction as yet, postponed like the rest," Becker tells

"I took the decision after consultation with my DC chairmen so as not to unnecessarily put witnesses, parties as well as my committee members unnecessarily at risk.

"Should we have a very urgent matter, we will try to handle it electronically. At least we were pro-active and did not even wait for the government's shutdown or for that matter, SAFA to try to take the lead."

The PSL is suspended until at least April 16 following State President Cyril Ramaphosa's declaration of a countrywide lockdown, starting on Friday.

Sirino's case has been dragging on since the end of October last year. The MTN8 semifinal second leg against SuperSport United was on September 18.

The consequences of another delay means it becomes more likely that Sirino will miss crucial end-of-season fixtures as Sundowns chase the Absa Premiership title and Nedbank Cup.

The Brazilians also still have to play leaders Kaizer Chiefs in what could be a league title decider.
