Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Are you saying that events described by the referee are made up?
Thanks I'm sorry for the delay.
I am afraid that this would not be classed as libel as in order for something to amount to libel it needs to be publically made. A report to a committee would not be deemed to be publically made.
If you have evidence that it is untrue then it could be deemed to amount to negligent misstatement. This is something that you can take legal action for, however it is only possible (in the UK) to sue for actual financial loss and it is unlikely that you will suffer a financial loss as a result of this report.
It seems therefore, that you will need to rely on the GFA rules of procedure to deal with this. I would suggest you ask for a copy of those to see how you can appeal and what other procedural remedy you may have.
