Weiss, Palami, Younghusband told to clear selves

MANILA, Pjilippines—National coach Michael Weiss, manager Dan Palami and player James Younghusband have been given 10 days to explain why they should not be sanctioned for the incident that led to the filing of sexual harrasment charges by AFC match commissioner Cristy Ramos.

Speaking after a hearing on the case, appeals committee chair Gregorio Larrazabal last night told the Inquirer that they are in no rush to rule on the case as they “want to be sure we’ll understand all the arguments.”

The committee also includes lawyers Jorenz Tanada and Armand Sebastian.


The Azkals were in Malacañang last night to pay a courtesy call on President Aquino.


The panel suspended the penalties on the three last week since they were not included in the Ramos complaint.

Ramos only filed the complaint against players Lexton Moy and Angel Guirado for their actions in the prematch inspection during the Malaysia-Philippines friendly last February.

The two players have been cleared of the charges, but were suspended for a “breakdown in discipline.”

Weiss and Palami also appealed their two-match suspensions by the disciplinary committee which sanctioned them along with Younghusband for “failure of leadership.”
