Confederation of African Football (CAF) has slammed a six-months ban on Mauritian referee Rajindraparsad Seechurn, and ended his participation in the ongoing AFCON 2015 in Equatorial Guinea.
He had awarded what was described as a dubious penalty to the hosts in their quarterfinal match against Tunisia over the weekend.
The injury time penalty helped the hosts to equalize and then winning 2-1 after taking the game to extra time. The decision sparked violence and marred the match’s integrity.
The Tunisians too were given a £33,000 fine for their behaviour on the pitch and their FA ordered to apologise to CAF for accusing the body of bias.
