The matter of safety is one of the most interesting elements to arise from the complaints made by the trio of players on Marawa Sports Worldwide (MSW) regarding the 2015 match-fixing saga.

This and other technical grounds for justification of players’ conduct are considered in terms of their impact on possible challenges to the validity of players’ sanction agreements.

A further important element arising from these complaints is the question of whether further players may still be criminally charged. It appears that no criminal charges have been brought against any players aside from ringleader Gulam Bodi, who was sentenced by the Commercial Crimes Court.
