The two were originally given eight- and ten- game suspensions, respectively, for “attempted assault” of the referees. That punishment resulted in a referee strike that saw this weekend’s Jornada 10 games postponed, with the Mexican Referee Association (AMA) noting that the suspensions were not based on the existing regulations for sanctions.
“Once the presented documents and evidence were analyzed, the Appeals Committee has decided to revoke the sanctions imposed by the Disciplinary Committee on March 10, 2017, regarding the players Enrique Triverio of Club Toluca and Pablo Aguilar of Club América.
“In their place, it has decided to sanction the players Enrique Triverio of Club Toluca and Pablo Aguilar of Club América with one year of suspension and a fine of 450 UMAS [about $1,605 U.S.] for having infringed Article 18 of the Regulations for Sanctions.”
AMA declared itself satisfied with the suspensions, as they “abide by the Regulations for Sanctions” and stated that the referees have returned to work, effectively ending the strike.
The Mexican Referee Association is ready to continue with the Clausura 2017 season
