"This is a very big issue and I think you saw with the statements from the club that they are taking this thing very seriously," said the source.
"The investigation is going on and it's something that needs to be dealt with accordingly. Pirates cannot condone such things as Gender Based Violence because we have to set to an example. There were things that were supposed to be announced, but at the moment we can't do that because there is a burning issue with one of the players."
The insider was reluctant to share more information about the announcements, only stating that player transfers and new signings will be shared with the public soon.
