Thank you for your question.
This fine can't be enforced through the normal judicial channels as it wasn't imposed by a recognised court.
The fine is contractual in nature which could only be enforced as a civil penalty against someone who had contracted to submit to the rules of the association unless the rules provide, or you agreed, that any decision could be registered for enforcement. I can find nothing in the Judicial Procedures of the MSA to that effect.
In short, I doubt that they will enforce the fine if you are having nothing more to do with them in the future.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
