Court adjourns GFA injunction case

By Mutala Yakubu

An Accra High Court has adjourned an injunction application filed by the Attorney General Gloria Akuffo against the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The case was adjourned to Thursday, July 12, 2018, to allow lawyers for the GFA to respond to the application.

After the Anas expose which captured some officials of the GFA engaging in alleged corrupt practices, A-G filed an ex- parte application for a ten-day injunction on all football activities in the country which also prevented GFA officials from carrying out their duties.

The ten days has expired and the A-G filed another application to extend the injunction.

At the hearing for the injunction today July 9, 2018, Mr Abu Juan who is the lawyer for the GFA said their clients were served with the suit late on Friday and were therefore unable to work on their response on time.

He then asked the court to adjourn the case to Thursday 12th July 2018.
