On Friday, April 7, Ian Proctor, a senior member of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal down under, denied the appeals of Shayne and Greg Cramp, who were handed 12-year bans from the industry in the fall of 2015.

News of the denied appeals comes courtesy of a report by the Sunraysia Daily, which states that the Cramps were charged and both pleaded guilty and were convicted at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in 2015 of corrupting a betting outcome.

“This is required to provide sufficient general deterrence and to send a message to all involved in the harness racing industry that if anyone participates in corrupt behaviour they are likely to effectively be permanently removed from the industry,” Proctor said.

“If that is their livelihood, the results are likely to be catastrophic.”
