Referees Association of Ghana (RAG) has handed life-time bans to eight referees who were captured taking bribes in the investigative piece by ace journalist Anas Armeyaw Anas.

The committee started work on 20/8/18 and submitted their written report to RAG on 8/9/18. RAG upon the receipt of the report had RAG Executive meeting on 15/9/18 under 34 (b) (v) and approved the following recommendations
