will ensure disciplinary hearings against `sex scandal` not delayed: Proteas football
Johannesburg: The South African Football Association (SAFA) has said that it would `fight` to ensure that the disciplinary hearings into sexual misconduct allegations against its Cape Town vice-president Vernon Seymour were not delayed.
Seymour had obtained an urgent court interdict to stop disciplinary hearings, which had been going on in December
According to Sport24, SAFA Cape Town stated that the organisation was pursuing allegations that Seymour `used his position to try and extract sexual favours from a young female colleague`, adding that if he is found guilty then he will be fired and banned from football.
The statement also said that SAFA and the African National Championships (CHAN) of which Seymour was competitions manager, would oppose the granting of a final interdict.
The statement further said that Seymour was suspended from SAFA a day after the allegations were brought to the organisation`s attention, adding that once informed of the alleged sexual misconduct, CHAN also suspended him and sought to hold their own disciplinary hearings.
