RWWA Greyhound Stewards today opened an inquiry into comments posted on Facebook on 20 October 2017 by Greyhound T2 Trainer and Breeder Mr John Edwards.
Mr Edwards had previously been interviewed on 3 November 2017 in relation to this matter by Senior Investigative Steward Mr Paul Criddle and Steward Mr Simon Jones. Following that interview, Mr Edwards relinquished both his licenses.
Mr Edwards was served with a formal Notice of Inquiry on Tuesday 14 November 2017, directing him to attend an inquiry scheduled for this morning at the Ascot Offices, at 10.00am. As he had previously indicated to Stewards, Mr Edwards failed to attend the inquiry.
After consideration of the matter, the RWWA Stewards have determined to disqualify Mr Edwards forthwith, until such time as he attends this inquiry.
