Anas Video: Government Moves To Court To Dissolve GFA

The Government will be in court today to initiate the process to dissolve the Ghana Football Association following Anas’ video dubbed ‘Number 12’.

The Government has filed two applications at the Court to dissolve the current GFA.

The first application is an ex parte for interim injunction which will restrain the Ghana FA from performing football related activities in  the country.

The second application is to liquidate the GFA.

“The Attorney General has filed two things, first application to liquidate the GFA, and second one is an ex parte motion seeking an injunction to restrain the GFA at presently constituted  from operating or doing any other form of business relating to football,” Information Minister Mustapha Hamid told reporters.

BACKGROUND

Last Thursday, Government issued a statement that they will be taking steps to dissolve the GFA after Anas’ video dubbed “Number 12” captured top Ghana FA officials, referees and match commissioners taking bribes to influence games.

The video also captured the GFA President extorting monies from potential investors (undercover people) using the name of President Akufo-Addo.

Due to that, Nyantakyi  who has resigned as GFA President was banned three months by FIFA.

In order to conduct investigation, the Police has declared the FA office as a crime scene.
