Suspended Athletics SA (ASA) chief executive Frik Vermaak will face a disciplinary hearing on Thursday, the federation has confirmed.

“The hearing will be held tomorrow [Thursday], with an independent attorney, in Johannesburg,” ASA president James Evans said on Wednesday.

The hearing, which was to have been held on Monday, was delayed after a break-in at the ASA head office in Houghton last week.

Computers and other ASA property were stolen.

Vermaak is charged with alleged misappropriation of funds and dishonesty relating to his employment credentials.

An athletics commentator for the SABC, Vermaak was appointed as ASA chief executive in December after a tumultuous two-year period for the athletics body.

During this time, three board members, including embattled president Leonard Chuene, were axed for misappropriating funds and for their roles in the Caster Semenya gender debacle.
