SAFA Reinstates Officials Suspended Over Match-Fixing Scandal Involving National Team
Published January 7, 2013
PUBLIC PERCEPTION: The BBC reported the exec committee also felt the officials "had been portrayed as guilty despite the fact the inquiries into match-fixing had not been completed." In a statement, SAFA said, "Given the significance of the findings of the FIFA investigators, the investigation process that follows must be procedurally fair and sound to ensure firm outcomes" (BBC, 1/4). In Johannesburg, SAFA spokesperson Dominic Chimhavi said that SAFA "is not hiding from the public" in the wake of the match-fixing scandal. Chimhavi said, "We want to allay the fears of the public. We are not sweeping this issue under the carpet" (MAIL & GUARDIAN, 1/5).
