Monday deadline for Asiagate fines



The players and officials who were suspended from football due to the infamous ‘Asiagate’ match-fixing scandal have until Monday, December 31, 2012 to pay their fines.

The Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) has urged all the necessary people to meet the deadline.

Jonathan Mashangazike, the chief executive officer of Zifa, has revealed there are still amounts outstanding, and he has warned the relevant parties they will not escape punishment if they fail to heed the deadline.

Mashangazike is hopeful Zimbabwean football, which has been heavily tainted by the saga, can start 2013 on a positive footing.

“We know there are people who are telling the players and the officials not to pay the fines because they will appeal the decision of the first judgement,” said Mashangazike.

“We warn that those who will not pay the fines by Monday (today) will be served with the notice to starting their suspensions. The fines are part of the whole punishment and there is no way we would just let people not pay. We want to start the New Year on a clean slate after finalising all the Asiagate issues,” concluded Mashangazike.
