The Scottish FA can confirm that the Judicial Panel Tribunal convened to consider Livingston FC’s ongoing breach of Disciplinary Rule 21 of the Judicial Panel Protocol has made the following decision:

Having considered submissions provided by the Scottish FA Compliance Officer and the solicitor acting on behalf of the club  in respect of the ongoing breach, the Tribunal has confirmed that it is satisfied that the situation which gave rise to a breach of Disciplinary Rule 21 has now been resolved. The registration embargo imposed by the Tribunal on 31 March is therefore lifted with immediate effect.
