EH communication on Sanctions for Covid 19 related offences

The National Disciplinary Panel has recommended that the following penalties should be imposed as the MINIMUM periods of suspension for Red Card / Matchday Misconduct Offences where the behaviour in question amounts to breach of Covid 19 protocols:-

Regulation 6.5(a) offences:- 45 Days suspension
Regulation 6.5(b) offences:- 60 Days suspension
Regulation 6.5(c) offences:- 90 Days suspension

The NDP is fully aware that the recommended minimum penalties set out above exceed the mandatory minimum sanctions for each category of offence as set out in the Red Card/ MMO Regulations, but feel that the threat of a significant period of suspension is necessary in order to persuade everyone to take their responsibilities seriously and to observe the current Covid 19 protocols to the letter. The summary above also deliberately excludes any reference to Regulation 6.5(d) cases on the basis that breaches of Covid 19 protocols could NOT be regarded as minor offences and that any report from an umpire referring to Reg 6.5(d) in the context of Covid 19 would result in the offence being placed in one of the other three categories and penalised accordingly.

Finally, a reminder that the Disrepute Offence Complaint Regulations are very specific in saying that where the conduct which constitutes the disrepute offence amounts to conduct which would be viewed as a Red Card/ MMO then similar penalties should follow.
