2022 CHAN: Morocco Won’t Face any Sanction for Failing to Show Up

CAF’s Disciplinary Committee has concluded that Royal Moroccan Federation was unable to travel and participate in the CHAN due to circumstances totally beyond their control, “and as such no sanction of whatsoever nature is imposed on the Royal Moroccan Federation.”

This comes following deliberations and examination of evidence, including a number of correspondences between Algeria, Morocco, and CAF, a statement from CAF said.

Morocco in January withdrew from the CHAN tournament as the Moroccan national team could not travel to Constantine, Algeria, because Royal Air Maroc (RAM), the team’s official airline, did not receive approval to fly from Rabat to Constantine.

CAF also said in the statement that after having extensively examined all the elements and evidence available, “the Disciplinary Board considered that it should not find vicarious liability on Algeria Football Federation and that the provisions of strict liability could not have been foreseen and should not apply to arise out of the statement made by Mr. Zwelivelile Mandela during the opening ceremony of CHAN.”

However, the Disciplinary Board also issued a formal reminder to all National Associations, inclusive of FAF, to be aware that the provisions of vicarious liability and strict liability may in the future be applied as a result of any political or other statements issued at a formal CAF competition or event which a third party may make.
