The saga in the corruption investigation in local football continued with three more referees and a South African Football Association (Safa) appearing in court on Thursday afternoon, bringing the number of people arrested to 28 since Operation Dribble was started.
The three latest refs to be arrested are all Premier Soccer League (PSL) referees and one is a retired referee who is now a Safa official.
The official was responsible for the appointment of referees in the former first Division, which is now call Mvela Golden League, and all the lower divisions.
The police have said that they are still looking for the master mind who was behind the matching fixing scandal that has shocked the soccer community in South Africa.
Safa and the PSL have not announced if the 2004/5 soccer season which is suppose to start next month will be affected.
