Cetransa El Salvador will be requested to answer a Misconduct complaint under the 2010 / 2011 Amlin Challenge Cup Disciplinary Rules relating to the Cetransa El Salvador v Petrarca Rugby Amlin Challenge Cup Pool 4 match on Sunday, 19 December, 2010, at Campo de Pepe Rojo.
An investigation by ERC's Disciplinary Officer, Roger O'Connor, has found that Cetransa El Salvador may have committed an act of Misconduct in that David Martin (No 14), who played in the match against Petrarca Rugby, was not registered with ERC as a member of the club's tournament squad.
An independent Disciplinary Committee will be appointed as soon as practicable to hear the complaint.
Independent Disciplinary Committee: a) The independent Disciplinary Committee is chosen by the Chairman of the independent Disciplinary Panel, Professor Lorne Crerar
b) The ERC Disciplinary Officer, Roger O'Connor, presents the case against the club
c) Both parties to the hearing (ERC and the club) have the right to appeal decisions of the independent Disciplinary Committee. Appeals must be lodged within 72 hours of receiving the full written decision from the Chairman of the independent Disciplinary Committee
d) The full written decision of the independent Disciplinary Committee will be available on www.ercrugby.com/disciplinenews when the disciplinary process is complete
