The Accra High Court has adjourned hearing for an injunction application filed by the Attorney-General against the Ghana Football Association.

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

Last month, the A-G 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.

But at hearing for the injunction today, lawyer for the GFA, Mr Abu Juan, said lawyers for the football association were served with the new application last Friday.


He, therefore, pleaded with the court to adjourned the case to allow lawyers for the GFA file their response to the A-G’s latest application

The action by the A-G came about following an expose on corruption in Ghana football by private investigator Anas Aremeyaw Anas in which various top people in the FA hierarchy were alleged to have received bribes
