The Appeals Committee of the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has referred the matter involving Young Green Eagles and Nkana to the Disciplinary Committee.
In a ruling on the appeal lodged by Young Green Eagles challenging the decision by the FAZ Player Status Committee to award points to Nkana over the alleged use of an ineligible player by the Kafue based side, the Appeals Committee ruled that only the Disciplinary Committee had the jurisdiction to effect the prescribed sanctions.
“The Player Status and Transfer Committee does not have jurisdiction to issue the sanctions contained in the ruling which led to the forfeiture of points. The Appeals Committee has therefore recommended to table your case before the relevant judicial body to impose the appropriate action,” reads a ruling signed by vice chairperson Isaac Nonde who adjudicated on the matter with Aongola Kambwa and Buchisa Mwalongo.
The FAZ Appeals Committee has directed that the demotion of Young Green Eagles be reconsidered by the FAZ Disciplinary Committee.
By this decision, Indeni who survived on the last day are temporarily demoted pending the outcome of the FAZ Disciplinary Committee.
