CAS Trust have asked the EFL to punish individuals not the club as their investigation into the purchase of the club by East Street Investments nears a conclusion. Echoing a concern expressed by Heather McKinlay on BBC Radio London, they ask that the club not be turned into another Bury: https://www.castrust.org/2020/06/punish-the-individuals-not-the-club/
How much sympathy there is at the EFL for Charlton is open to question. They have a lot on their plate and Charlton are just another problem like Macclesfield.
It is well to remember that the EFL is a limited company answerable to its club shareholders and its main task is to run a competition. It is not set up to be a regulatory body and does not really have the resources such a body would need to do its job properly which is why that task should be done elsewhere.
