AFCON 2015: CAF fines Equatorial Guinea over security

Host, Equatorial Guinea, has been fined by the Con­federation of African Football for its handling of the security issues dur­ing the quarter final game between its team and Tu­nisia in Bata last Satur­day.

In a release circulated to African media on Tuesday, CAF ruled thus:

“Considering the pitch invasion by some Equato­rial Guinean fans and the lack of security measures observed, and based on Article 151 para 2 of the CAF Disciplinary Code, the Disciplinary Jury of CAF imposed a financial penalty of US$5,000 (Five Thousand US Dollars) on FEGUIFUT”.

The release went on to state that Equatorial Guinea had been asked to ensure that all security arrange­ments were taken to ensure the smooth running of the matches of the semifinals and final of the Orange Af­rica Cup of Nations in 2015.
