Administrator to lay charges

2010-08-17 00:00

ATHLETICS South Africa (ASA) interim administrator will this week be formally laying charges against certain individuals identified in the report on the forensic audit undertaken by Deloittes arising out of the Caster Semenya issue, which resulted in the suspension of president Leonard Chuene, the previous ASA Board and three ASA employees.

Charge sheets will also be issued to members identified for disciplinary hearings. The first of these hearings will commence on September 9 and 10, while South African Sports Congress and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) have also confirmed that they will defend the arbitration process that has been instigated against them by Chuene and suspended board members Maponyane and Simon Dlamini.

The charges made against the suspended members include misappropriation of funds, tax evasion and issues of poor corporate governance.
