Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials
STANDARD OF PROOF AND EVIDENCE
6.2 The Match Referee or Commissioner shall not be bound by judicial rules governing the admissibility of evidence. Instead, facts relating to an offence committed under the Code of Conduct may be established by any reliable means, including admissions.
6.3 The Match Referee or Commissioner may draw an inference adverse to the Player or Team Official who is asserted to have committed an offence under the Code of Conduct based on his/her refusal, without compelling justification, after a request made in a reasonable time in advance of the hearing, to appear at the hearing (either in person or telephonically as directed by the Match Referee or Commissioner) and/or to answer any relevant questions.
