Criminal proceedings have commenced on six Ghanaian referees who were caught allegedly being bribed in the Anas expose.

The referees were officially arrested on Wednesday but were granted bail with surety amounting to GHc 50,000.

The identities of the referees and the charge preferred against them remain undisclosed.

But it is clear the Ghana Police is proceeding to build a docket over the accused to be forwarded to the Attorney General’s department for further prosecution.

A documentary dubbed Number 12 authored by Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas was displayed to the public two months ago to reveal massive rot in Ghana and Africa football.

Aside referees, some high ranking officials of the Ghana FA were caught in the sting operation in several alleged acts of wrongdoing.

The situation has led to the complete halt on all football activities in Ghana with the government in court seeking the dissolution of the Ghana FA.

CAF meanwhile have issued several degrees of bans to the Ghanaian referees caught in the expose.
