COURT ADJOURNS GOVERNMENT’S CASE AGAINST GHANA FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION

An adjournment was the outcome when an Accra High Court opened for the hearing of the case filed by the Attorney-General against the Ghana Football Association.

The Government’s Attorney General filed for an injunction application against the GFA in order to prevent the suspended Executive Committee of the Association to run football in the country.

The Judge who sat on the case adjourned to Thursday, July 12, 2018. This was done in order to allow lawyers for the GFA to respond to the application filed against them.

Last month, the Attorney General filed an ex- parte application for a ten-day injunction on all football activities in the country which also bars the GFA and its officials from carrying out any official duties within the stipulated time.

After the expiration of the 10 days, the A-G filed another application this time a motion on notice to extend the injunction.

He, therefore, pleaded with the court for adjournment of the case to allow the legal team for the GFA respond to the A-G’s latest application appropriately.
