The PSL disciplinary committee has provided an update in respect of the pending cases against Kaizer Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs are involved in legal proceedings in respect of two no-shows against Golden Arrows and Cape Town City earlier this season, both matches of which have since been re-played, while they have also been charged with fielding ineligible players in a separate incident against Sekhukhune United.
The Amakhosi will appear in court on Friday in respect of the latter after it was alleged that youngsters Aden McCarthy and Mduduzi Shabalala were improperly registered for the DStv Premiership clash against Sekhukhune United.
"Kaizer Chiefs Football Club will be appearing before the PSL DC [on] 13 May to answer to charges of fielding defaulters, namely; Aden McCarthy and Mduduzi Shabalala between themselves and Sekhukhune FC. This matter was previously postponed to tomorrow at the request of Kaizer Chiefs," Majavu added.
Lastly, in respect of Chiefs' failure to honour the aforementioned fixtures, the matter is set to return to court early next.
"Kaizer Chiefs will appear before the PSL DC on 17 May 2022 at 16:00. This is a continuation of the matter that was previously on the roll, which I withdrew after the arbitrator's award under the hand of Advocate Nazir Cassiem SC had found that Chiefs were justified in not fulfilling those fixtures due to an act of God, with specific reference to the Covid situation.
"The PSL executive committee elected to challenge that outcome and took it on review. In the result, I decided to not proceed further with that case, but rather to await the outcome of that review in the High Court.
"I can now confirm that the review in the High Court was finalized on 10 May 2022. I can confirm that the award of Advocate Cassim SC was reviewed and set aside. In the result, the referral to arbitration was equally set aside. I have decided to proceed with the case. Kaizer Chiefs must still come before the DC and account for their non-fulfilment of those fixtures."
