The Normalisation Committee (NC) has condemned the assault of referee Theresa Bremensu during the first leg semi-final match of the Women’s Special Competition between Prison Ladies and Ampem Darkoa Ladies in Sunyani on Sunday.

The NC in a statement issued on Monday said it will liaise with the police to ensure that appropriate sanctions are meted out to the perpetrators.

It read: “While expressing our commiseration to Referee Bremensu, the NC would like to state that it does not condone any abuse; verbal or physical towards match officials and takes such attacks very seriously.

“Albeit, the Special Competition has not recorded any such appalling attacks, last weekend’s incident is of great bother.”

“The NC would like to state that such acts of violence on referees are a drawback as we strive to Normalize Ghana football.”

The NC reiterates Dr Kofi Amoah’s caution at the launch of the Special Competition that improvements in the GFA Statutes and Regulations as much as they are necessary would not in and by themselves absolve our football from illegalities, corruption, and uncivilized behaviors and undue aggression

Part of our nation’s ability to engender transformation in our football doesn’t have to do with regulation; it has to do with shaping attitudes, shaping cultures, increasing awareness and embracing our common humanity and purpose

Attacking a referee physically must be condemned by all and exorcised from all parts of our football

We would like to assure the general public that we will liaise with the police to ensure appropriate sanction is meted out to the perpetrator(s).

Meanwhile, Normalization Committee in accordance with the GFA Statute will refer the matter to the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA.

We will like to appeal to the football community to help safeguard the beautiful game.
