The High Court has adjourned the contempt case brought against the Ghana Football Association (GFA) by Ashantigold Football Club to Wednesday, October 26, 2022.
The case was adjourned for the second time following a directive by the jugde, Justice Nicholas Agbodakpi for GFA Executive Council Member, Dr. Randy Abbey to open his defense in a mini-trial.
The mini-trial is being conducted to determine whether or not Dr. Randy Abbey was served with an order for an interlocutory injunction issued by the court on 28th September 2022.
GFA Lawyer, Naa Odofoley Nortey informed the court that Dr. Abbey, alongside other Executive Council Members, Frederick Acheampong and Samuel Anim Addo, are out of the country on a national assignment.
The Bailiff, Ellis Armah, who is alleged to have served Mr Abbey with the court order for an interlocutory injunction, concluded his testimony this morning after cross-examination.
Ashgold cited the Executive Council for contempt claiming the body ignored an interlocutory injunction placed on 2022/2023 Betpawa Premier League which kicked off on September 10, 2022.
The Miners are seeking imprisonment for the GFA Executive Council Members for what they describe as disregard for the dignity, respect, and authority of the court.
