The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Ethics and Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned Police FC Chairman AIGP Asan Kasingye over misconduct at the pitch
This is after he made controversial allegations on social media following their Vipers SC game on February 19th which they lost 3-2.
In a series of tweets, Kasingye claimed that Vipers SC compromises referees with money.
Earlier during the match, Kasingye also protested and stormed into the pitch after their goalkeeper Derrick Ochan was given a red card after he handled the ball outside his area.
Therefore Kasingye is accused of for violating Article 39(2) of the FUFA Ethics Code which provides that; Persons bound by this Code are forbidden from making any public statements of a defamatory nature towards FUFA and /or towards any other person bound by this code in the context of FUFA events.
The disciplinary committee has thus instructed Kasingye to pay the fine within 30 days after receipt of the decision.
A minimum fine of UGX 2.5M ( Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Uganda Shillings Only) under Article 39 (3) and Article 40 (2) of the FUFA Ethics Code. The fine must be paid within thirty (30) days from receipt of the decision.
An automatic six months ban from all football-related activities both Nationally and Internationally to be served in the event that Mr.Asan Kasingye commits any other specified unethical conduct against match officials or club officials or in case he fails to furnish proof of payment of the fine.
