The KwaZulu-Natal club official feels that the play-offs were ‘a waste of time, money and resources’.
Royal AM’s chief justice, Happy Godi, has revealed that the club wants PSL’s acting chief executive Mato Madlala to be jailed if contempt of court is found.
The Black and Gold have refused to take part in the recent play-offs for promotion / relegation due to their court battle with the PSL in which they aim to be at the top of the NFD position of 2020/21 again.
The play-offs were postponed after Royal AM received an urgent interdict on June 14 to stop the matches by acting judge AJ Nyathi.
But the PSL appealed and Judge Roland Sutherland gave an order the application for leave to appeal to Royal AM on 18 June.
The matches finally started on 19 June with Chippa United and Richards Bay playing twice and the two teams winning a landslide victory for their matches against Royal AM, who could not respect their match.
Chippa finished at the top of the playoffs and they have maintained their status in the elite league, and Royal AM now want to ensure that Madlala is punished.
“Our opinion is that the PSL acted against the order of Judge Nyathi, who suspended the play-offs pending the settlement of our appeal,” Godi said. Sunday World.
‘The PSL therefore acted illegally and contemptuously in court. If convicted, their accountant, who is the CEO, should be jailed.
“The play-offs were just a waste of time, money and resources – they have to be declared void.”
Madlala has been acting CEO of PSL since replacing Brand de Villiers in November 2015. She is also the chair of Royal AM’s competitors in KwaZulu-Natal, Lamontville Golden Arrows,
Shauwn Mkhize, owner of the Royal AM, added that the National Soccer League, which is the parent body of the PSL, allegedly violated rules.
“This matter deals with very weighty and important matters of public and constitutional interest, which happened to be played out in the field of soccer,” she said in the same publication.
“The alleged multiple offenses … by the NSL must therefore be seen in the most serious light.”
However, the league does not want to deceive it, as PSN prosecutor Nande Becker said they were seriously considering taking disciplinary action against Royal AM.
“I am seriously considering taking disciplinary action in respect of all four matches that Royal AM refuses to meet its obligations,” he said.
The new PSL season 2021/22 is expected to start next month.
