JS Kabylie sanctioned
The Algerian Ligue Professionnelle (LFP) and the Disciplinary Committee of the Algerian Football Federation (FAF) convened a meeting on Monday (25 August 2014) attended by officials of JS Kabylie, USM Alger and match officials who handled the league clash that led to the death of Cameroonian striker, Albert Ebosse.
After deliberations, the Disciplinary Committee ruled on the first of a series of measures against JS Kabylie, in its capacity as hosts of the match held on Saturday (23 August 2014) at the 1 November 1954 Stadium in Tizi Ouzou.
The Committee decided that the club will play their championship games outside the Tizi Ouzou province whilst the 1 November 1954 Stadium remains closed until the outcome of investigations.
"These are the first sanctions, pending the outcome of various investigations. FAF and the LFP will study the case in the coming days for sanctions whether nationally or internationally since JS Kabylie, after placing second in the league last season have qualified for the CAF Champions League," the statement said.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Ebosse died of a trauma caused after being hit by a sharp object leading to internal bleeding.
