Cape Town -The PSL DRC has made a final ruling regarding Camaldine Abraw's disputed transfer to defending PSL champions Kaizer Chiefs.
PSL statement on the matter:
The Premier Soccer League has noted media reports relating to the matter involving Abraw.
While the League does not want to enter the public debate on the matter, it is important for clarity purposes to make a few points.
The matter between Bloemfontein Celtic, Kaizer Chiefs and Camaldine Abraw was heard by the Dispute Resolution Chambers (DRC) following a complaint by Bloemfontein Celtic that the player had signed a ‘pre-contract’ with the club and therefore could not join Kaizer Chiefs.
Bloemfontein Celtic also made an application to interdict the player’s registration.
The PSL DRC made the following ruling:
- The application by Bloemfontein Celtic (to interdict the player registration) was dismissed.
- The PSL must investigate, and if necessary, prosecute Mr Camaldine Abraw.
- The League is to investigate the conduct of Bloemfontein Celtic in not informing Free State Stars in writing that it intended to negotiate with Mr Abraw (while the player was still contracted to Free State Stars) and, if appropriate, take action.
- The League is to investigate the conduct of Kaizer Chiefs and, if necessary, take appropriate action.
The DRC ruling has been forwarded to the PSL Prosecutor for consideration.
The PSL will make no further comment on this matter until we have new information for the media and public.
