Azam Premier league club, SC Villa have found themselves in the wrong foot of World soccer governing body, FIFA, regarding the transfer of Emma Okwi in December 2013.
FIFA notes that in its investigations SC Villa did not comply with its obligations under the transfer regulations in accordance with Article 9.2 Paragraph. The Sixteen time record champion has been given up to 25th February 2015 to provide any documentary evidence regarding the transfer.
Part of the communication dated 4th February 2015 and signed by Jamie Cambreleng Contreras (Deputy Secretary to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee) that was sent to FUFA reads; “We have taken note that on 13th December 2013, the club SC Villa introduced in the Transfer Matching System (hereinafter,TMS) a transfer instruction (TMS instruction 81299), regarding the transfer of the player Emmanuel Arnold Okwi to your affiliated club SC Villa, under the category. “Engage out of contract free of payment”, thus initially asserting that no amount was paid in connection with such transfer.
Nevertheless, according to the transfer agreement dated 12th December 2013 that was uploaded into TMS and to the preliminary investigation carried out by TMS, it appears that the amount of USD 20,000 was to be effectively paid by the club SC Villa to SC Villa.”
