SA Bribery Case Deepens… Player Sent Into Hiding?

The Bribery Corruption Case Involving The ABC Motsepe League Is Getting Deeper

By Joe Crann - Apr 16, 2017 09:11 AM @YesWeCrann
The bribery and corruption case involving ABC Motsepe League Gauteng champions, Maccabi FC, may be getting deeper as more allegations are put against them this week.
 
It was reported recently by the Siya crew that the Disciplinary Hearing involving Maccabi had been postponed to April 20th as the original April 12th date was not convenient for all the parties.
 
Now, with the champions still waiting to see whether they will be allowed to play in the National First Division playoffs or not, there have been more damaging reports about their conduct.
 
The club are accused of bribing opposition players to manipulate a result in the build-up to them winning the title, with a complaint being lodged to SAFA by Vaal Professionals.
 
According to Vusi Mtimani, the Media Liason Officer for the South African Football Players’ Union, a player has since contacted them to say that he is allegedly being offered money not to testify.
 
Mtimani told the crew, “It has been alleged that one of the witnesses’ family has been visited by Maccabi officials, and asked not to testify in exchange for a huge amount of money close to R50,000. The family has since alerted the police and moved the said set player into hiding.
 
“We can’t let our young players be corrupted by soccer bosses. The players of Vaal did well in reporting the case to the police. We are against bribery and corruption; players are advised to stay away from these activities. As SAFPU we say no to bribery and corruption.
 
“SAFA need to take a stand and root out all this madness and corrupt individuals. They must make sure our players are protected against these criminals. We’re happy to be alerted about these activities ahead of Thursday's case of corruption. Lets hope justice will be done and that those found guilty are banned from football.”
 
The crew contacted Maccabi's co-chairman, Alan Norman, who said, "We will deal with the initial complaint at the DC. In regard to the allegation you have mentioned, we will ourselves lay a complaint with the relevant authorities."
 
The hearing is due to take place next Thursday where a decision is expected to be made.

All those who practice corruption, I don't blame them as it is like a disease and very much contagious if the head(Zuma) is corrupt you will always see the samples of it in the blood.

Its becoming interesting now..exactly who is this official from maccabi that visited the family of the witness?? He/she has a name and they must mention his/her name and shame him/her..the so called player is not willing to take 50 goras and not testify but he "took" way less than that to sell the game?? Ridiculous
