VIDEO: Referee sentenced to prison for scoring non-existent penalty

The Superior Court of Novi Sad on Thursday sentenced football referee Srdjan Obradovic to 15 months in prison for having been proved to have abused his position to score a non-existent penalty in favor of Spartak Subotica, in the reception to the Radnicki, in a game played in May 2018.

In addition, Obradovic has been banned for ten years from any role related to arbitration, or any position in the Serbian Football Federation (FSS), reported the Tanjug agency.

Both the prosecution and the defense will be able to appeal this decision, regarding the game that dictated Spartak’s 2-0 victory, with both goals to be scored from penalty, one of which dictated this judicial decision. Radnicki ended up with one less player, for expulsion. The game was then of importance in accessing European competitions.

On the field, Obradovic had indicated that there had been a hand on the ball of a Radnicki player, which did not exist.
