Liberian FA bans ref for 2 years for taking bribe

August 14 – The Liberia Football Association (LFA) has banned referee Josephus Torjilar for two years for accepting a bribe.

The ban follows an investigation conducted by the LFA’s grievance and disciplinary committee.

During the investigation Torjilar admitted he received $100 after a second-tier relegation play-off match that saw Pags beat Srimex FC 2-0.

“Any referee(s) or match official(s) accused of taking bribe shall be investigated by the disciplinary committee and if found guilty, such match official shall be banned for two years,” said an LFA statement.
