SINGAPORE, 7 DECEMBER 2017: The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) today announced that National Football League Division One clubs Yishun Sentek Mariners FC and SAFSA have been officially issued letters enclosing the appropriate charges by the FAS to notify them and their players of the FAS Disciplinary Committee’s hearing into the incident on the pitch on 12th November 2017.

Due to the nature of this particular disciplinary case and the fact that the official connected with one of the clubs holds an official position in the FAS, the FAS has, shortly after the said incident, appointed an independent panel comprising two senior and experienced lawyers namely Mohamed Muzammil Bin Mohamed and Mohan Das Naidu to conduct investigations into the incident, to draft the charges, to present the evidence to prove the charges and to make all necessary submission on behalf of the FAS at the Disciplinary Committee’s hearing.

Both lawyers have been working tirelessly since the panel was convened and have, since 2 December 2017, finalised all the charges against all relevant parties concerned. They are ready to present all the necessary evidence at the Disciplinary Committee’s hearing.   

The clubs and the individuals charged have been given up till 48 hours prior to the scheduled date of their hearing to respond to the charges. The Disciplinary Committee which was properly and legitimately elected by the recent Congress will hear the cases on 12 December 2017.
