Verevou suspended, fined for deception

Top Rewa striker Iosefo Verevou has copped a suspension and fine for a case of deception in the player transfer window which officially closed yesterday.

Verevou had approached Suva and made a statutory declaration that he wanted a transfer to the capital city, resulting in Suva FA incurring expenses after the declaration.

Confirming the decision of the disciplinary hearing by the Board of Control (BOC) to FijiLive, Fiji FA Chief Executive Mohammed Yusuf said Verevou was found guilty of deception and has been charged accordingly.

“The committee met and after all deliberations, a decision was made and Iosefo has been fined $5000 for deception.”

“He has also been ordered to pay $782 as compensation to Suva FA for the expenses they incurred. They kept him in a hotel for 5 days and had incurred expenses."

In addition to the fines, he has also been suspended for six matches.

”Effective from today, he has been suspended from district and club football until he has missed 6 district matches.”

“The fine (to Fiji FA) and compensation (Suva FA) have to be paid fully after the suspension period to make him eligible to represent Rewa,” said Yusuf.

Meanwhile Verevou’s elder sibling, Epeli Saukuru is also facing a similar case.

Saukuru had applied to join Lautoka but withdrew.

His case will be held on February 11 as Lautoka FA was not present during the hearing on Tuesday night.
