Serbian referee sentenced to prison for scoring non-existent penalty

Referee Srdjan Obradovic was sentenced to 15 months for abuse of power. In 2018, the judge scored a non-existent penalty in the match between Spartak Subotica and Radnicki Nis.

In addition, Srdjan is also prohibited from holding any position in the National Football Federation for ten years.

The sentence is still subject to appeal and was handed down by the Anti-Corruption Chamber of the Superior Court of Novi Sad, according to information from the Serbian news agency Tanjug.

Spartak won 2-0 after two penalties, one of which was then classified by the sports press as “scandalous”. In addition, the team also had an extra player on the pitch.
