Judgement Reserved In Ajax High Court Application

Update on Ajax Cape Town's High Court Application

By Soccer Laduma - May 16, 2018 04:17 PM

Judgement has been reserved in the Ajax Cape Town high court application to interdict the PSL promotion/ relegation play-offs.

Mzansi’s football fraternity was shocked yesterday, on May 15, when the South African Football Association (SAFA) announced that Ajax had been found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro, and the outcome meant that the Urban Warriors had been relegated.

“Ajax Cape Town found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro and forfeit matches against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City & Supersport United. They lose all three matches 3-0 & fined R50 000 on each offence,” SAFA stated on their official Twitter account at the time.

The ramifications mean that Platinum Stars now feature in the PSL Promotional Play-offs with Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos, while Ajax are relegated to the NFD. 

Ajax then made it public that they will be heading to High Court in Johannesburg. Ajax stated on their official Twitter account, “Ajax Cape Town are currently consulting with their legal team regarding William Mokhari SC's arbitration ruling released this morning. 

“The club is in the process of preparing papers to be filed urgently before the High Court in Johannesburg for the matter to be heard tomorrow morning at 10 am.

“Amongst other issues, the club will seek to interdict the promotion play-offs from commencing on Wednesday 16th May at 3 pm. This will be sought pending an urgent review of the arbitrator's award this morning.”

Court proceedings were underway today, where numerous clubs presented arguments to the court. 

Judge Raylene Keightley reserved judgement and an urgent review has been set for a later date.

It is really confusing how psl concluded the Ndoro & Ajax case, i mean to say some of the teams never lodged any complaints but yet they get rewarded with free 3 points

@LeCowhlohlo, it depends. Khoza has authority over PSL. Jordan has authority over SAFA, President Motsepe has authority over Downs and his Mines, so on and on.

@LeCowhlohlo, nooooooooo....ngwaneso! I never claimed to know too much. My concern is how the league chaired by Khoza handle its administration. That is my biggest concern.

You know pupil they had time to play?? Remember Psl has no authority to disrespect FIFA rules. It was a must for them to deduct Ajax points neither they like it or not.

Bring this case to @setlaboswana he has been ready from the start of this saga to keep team Ajax out of trouble. He really want to show Dr Khoza that he know football rules much more than him.

Had Khoza and crew listen to us by scraping play-offs this dejavu would have not happen because Ajax and Platinum Stars would be gone straight to NFD, both of them. Play offs are a waste of time and money. If they want play-offs they must increase teams to 18 or 20. Even so psl teams dont deserve that chance.

Bloemfontein Celtic once did the same thing with Lebohang Kukame and were stripped points just like Ajax and went straight to the NFD for that! So why would this be different with Ajax this time around?! They must stop wasting time

Ajax is just wasting our time they signed and fielded Ndoro whilst the rules were at their disposal for interpretation
