A referee in the Premier League was banned due to whistleblowing

A Premier League referee was banned due to whistleblowing.

The Ethics Committee of the Khuzestan Football Association has banned Abbas Raki, one of the referees in the Premier League, for six months for judgment errors in the Sepahan and Gol Gohar match.

Regardless of the fact that neither of these two teams are from Khuzestan, the decision-making authority regarding refereeing issues in the league is the Federation’s Referees Committee and has no connection to provincial associations.

Raki, who is the head of the Izeh Football Association, says the reason for his ban is criticizing the financial performance of Abdolkazem Taleghani, the head of the Khuzestan Football Association. He told IRNA, ‘Even if they don’t assign me any more matches, I won’t back down, and I will save Khuzestan football from captivity.’ He complained himself, judged himself, and banned himself.

This Premier League referee emphasized that Taleghani has also filed cases against me in the Federation’s Ethics Committee, but my documents have led the Federation not to call me and not pursue the case.
