JLC Reaction To The FA’s Decision Not To Charge Malky Mackay

16th July 2015

Simon Johnson, Chief Executive of The Jewish Leadership Council reacted as follows;

We are disappointed that the FA has decided not to charge Malky Mackay with any offence. This decision seems at odds with the positive interventions that the FA made in the cases of Dave Whelan and Mario Balotelli last season.

If the FA is determined to have a zero tolerance attitude to racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia and discrimination of any kind, then it is not sustainable to create a distinction between private messages and public comments.

I call upon the FA to review its disciplinary procedures and to rethink this inconsistent approach.
