The Premier Soccer League has since responded to the Judge Denise Fischer’s ruling regarding Ajax Cape Town’s latest appeal.
Judge Fischer today ruled in favour of Ajax, which saw the Urban Warriors reinstated to 15th position on the Absa Premiership league standings, deeming the promotion/relegation play-offs results null and void.
The Premier Soccer League has since responded by saying:
“The Premier Soccer League has noted the judgement handed down by Judge Fisher in the Johannesburg High Court today.
"The relief that was sought from the Court was the setting aside of Advocate Mokhari SC’s misconduct award together with orders that Ajax Cape Town should be on the 15thposition on the final League table, and that the Promotion Play-offs be set aside.
"Judge Fisher set aside Advocate Mokhari’s award but declined to hand down the other relief sought. It is necessary for the League to properly consider the meaning and effect of the judgement before making any further comment on the matter.
"The judgement and advice of the League’s advisors will be considered by the PSL Executive Committee and the appropriate steps will be taken in due course.”
