DATEREFERENCEDECISION
20/05/2024ASA DR55/2024Decision 1:
Joe Cremona (M'Scala Coach) guilty in terms of DC-B1-15(Q) and fined €150. After receiving clarification that Joe Cremona (M'Scala coach) is the same person who was the subject of DR 44/2024(i), Joe Cremona (M'Scala coach) is also found guilty of being a repeat offender in terms of DC-A5 and fined an additional €150.

Decision 2:
M'Scala guilty in terms of DC-C1-09 and fined €120.

Thomas Perici Ferrante (Sirens) guilty in terms of DC-B1-08(K), suspended for 1 U/18
Winter League match and fined €195.

Sirens have no more matches in the U/18 Winter Waterpolo competition this season apart
from an Out-of-Competition match in which the suspension cannot be served (WPCR-17(c)(iii)). Also, the Winter U/18 League and the Summer U/18 League cannot be considered
as the same competition for the scope of DC-A3(ii) and WPCR-ll. Therefore, by the application of DC-A3(ii), the one match suspension is converted into a fine of €50 on Sirens.

Thomas Perici Ferrante is also a Repeat Offender (DC-A5) - DR 19/2024(i) refers - and fined an additional €100.

Decision 2:
Andre Aquilina (Neptunes) guilty in terms of DC-B1-08(K), suspended for 1 U/18
Winter League match and fined €195.

Neptunes have no more matches in the U/18 Winter Waterpolo competition this season apart
from an Out-of-Competition match in which the suspension cannot be served (WPCR-17(c)(iii)). Also, the Winter U/18 League and the Summer U/18 League cannot be considered
as the same competition for the scope of DC-A3(ii) and WPCR-ll. Therefore, by the application of DC-A3(ii), the one match suspension is converted into a fine of €50 on Neptunes.

Andre Aquilina is also a Repeat Offender (DC-A5) - DR22/2024(i) refers - and fined an additional €100.
08/05/2024ASA DR52/2024Dean Bugeja (Neptunes) guilty in terms of DC-B1-08(K), suspended for 1 Winter League match and fined €195.

The suspension shall be carried forward to next season's Winter League as stipulated by DC-A3(ii).
05/05/2024ASA DR51/2024M'Xlokk guilty in terms of DC-B7-03 and fined €50. The result of the match is to be fixed as 5-0 against the club.
05/05/2024ASA DR50/2024Mark Carani (M'Skala) guilty in terms of DC-B1-15(Q) and fined €65.
09/05/2024ASA DR49/2024Decision 1:
The reported player was identified as Zac Cutajar Licari after the Commisioner sought
clarification (as per TOR-24(ii)(a)) about his identity. The player's identity was also confirmed
because the DC was shown a copy of the match card wherein it was clearly written that No 5 White was Zac Cutajar Licari.

Zac Cutajar Licari (Neptunes) is found guilty in terms of DC-B1-15(Q) for protesting and fined
€65.

Zac Cutajar Licari (Neptunes) is also found guilty in terms of DC-B1-15(Q) for passing remarks using vulgar or unacceptable language at the referee and fined a further €100. This
fine is not the minimum laid down for type Q offences because the use of vulgar or
unacceptable is considered to be an aggravating factor
30/04/2024ASA DR48/2024Decision 1:
Mattias Bonnici (Otters) guilty in terms of DC-B1-08(K) and suspended for 1 Winter League
match and fined €195.
30/04/2024ASA DR47/2024Decision 1:
Sirens submitted a contestation in connection with the report. However, this contestation was not submitted as per TOR-22(i)(e) - it was received by the General Secretary after 09:00 of the day after the match in question. Therefore, the Disciplinary Commissioner declared the contestation null and proceeded to decide on the report as an uncontested Match Card report.

The DC viewed the incident on the official video of the match that was provided as evidence by the ASA. From the video, it appeared that the player did not throw the ball in anger at the referee, especially if one considers that (i) the player had no reason to protest at that point in time (ii) the trajectory of the ball was parabolic and (iii) the ball was passed to the referee from, at least, 15-20m away and therefore, some force was essential.

Therefore, Peter Borg (Sirens) is not found guilty of any offence.
30/04/2024ASA DR46/2024Decision 1: "Dangerous play" does not feature either in the World Aquatics Water Polo Rules, or in the ASA Disciplinary Code. Therefore, Timothy Agius (M'Xlokk) is not found guilty of any offence.
29/04/2004ASA DR45/2024Under the authority delegated to it through the ASA Statute and ASA Disciplinary Code, the
Board of Appeals confirms the fine of two hundred euro (EUR 200) handed to Mr. Cauchi and
overturns the suspended sentence into an effective suspension term from all ASA activities until 31st
May 2024.

Commissioner, i.e. 21st March 2024.

When a referee submits a supplementary report, a Hearing of the Disciplinary Commissioner should be organised. The purpose of this is so that the subject of the Supplemenary Report will be given the opportunity to contest the contents of the said Supplementary Report.

Therefore, the Commissioner decided that the calling of a Hearing was not essential.

01/11/2023ASA DR98/2023the Disciplinary Commissioner concluded that Ella Fenech Attard has been living and training abroad for at least 8 weeks and, therefore, for the scope of the ASA Swimming Competition Rules, she is to be considered as a "Swimmer Residing and Training Overseas" and so her behaviour falls under SCR-41 and not SCR-42.
Whereas SCR-41 deals specifically with swimmers' relationships with the National Coach, Ella Fenech Attard is not a National Team Swimmer and does not train with the National Coach. Therefore, the Disciplinary Commissioner decides that Ella Fenech Attard has not breached the provisions of SCR-42.
The Disciplinary Commissioner also decides that Ella Fenech Attard is guilty of unethical behaviour because she participated in an international event as an athlete of "Malta" without authorisation or permission. Since this offence is not contemplated in the ASA Disciplinary Code, and since the swimmer cannot be fined because of her age, the Disciplinary Commissioner suspends Ella Fenech Attard from the next Age-Group Swimming meeting and severely reprimands her in terms of DC-A4 (vi).

2/21/2023ASA DR20/2023Decision 1:
Matthias Azzopardi (Sirens) guilty of 2 counts in terms of DC-B1-18-A (Q2). Guided by the decision of the Appeals Board (DC 17/2023), the fine stipulated under "R" (€170) is being applied instead of that under "Q2" (€350). The player is therefore fined €340.

DC-A4(i) says that when an offence is committed by an unidentified athlete, the applicable sanction shall be borne by the team captain. However, this article cannot be applied in this case because the report states that the offence was committed by "an unidentified person from the Valletta bench" and so this unidentified person could have been either a team official or a player (athlete). Therefore, there is no case to answer.

8/31/2021ASA DR31/2021After hearing the submissions of both parties and all the witnesses, Mr Sandro Pecorella, the Disciplinary Commissioner concludes as follows:-
Mr Rainer Scerri, after having been escorted from the pool deck by two ASA Officials (Carlo Mifsud and Karl Galea) did not leave the precincts of the pool as he was obliged to do. The fact that Mr Matthew Bonello exited from the stands and walked towards the Reception Area without feeling threatened in any way by the opposing club’s committee members, proves that at no point in time was Mr Rainer Scerri in any personal danger.
From the video evidence produced Mr Rainer Scerri’s unacceptable actions and verbal threats towards Mr Carlo Mifsud outside the Reception/Entrance Door were very clear, so much so that even his Club President, Mr Matthew Bonello, had to restrain him from aggravating his own and his club’s position.
In view of the above, Mr Rainer Scerri is found guilty in terms of DC-B1-13 (O) and fined €240 and suspended for 3 Senior matches. Mr Scerri is also found guilty in terms of DC-B1-18-A (R) and fined a further €190 and suspended for an additional 2 Senior matches.
Since Mr Scerri did not leave the precincts of the pool, these sanctions are doubled in terms of DC-A4.xi. Mr Scerri is therefore fined a total of €860 and suspended for 10 Senior matches.
The Disciplinary Commissioner also finds Rainer Scerri to be a repeat offender in terms of DC-A5 and fines him an additional €100.
The contestation deposit shall be forfeited in favour of the ASA.
