We'II storm back in Court if GFA fails to implement fully court directive-Olympics

Written by  Feb 21, 2018
Counsel for Accra Great Olympics, Amakai Amartefio, has hinted that, the team will go back to court should the Ghana Football Association (GFA), fail to fully implement the directive by the Accra High Court. The court on Wednesday dismissed an application for an interlocutory injunction filed by the embattled team. The court presided over by Justice Anthony Yeboah, said third parties and other stakeholders of the league would suffer if the injunction is upheld. The Human Rights Court 2 maintained that Olympics could adequately be compensated if the league is allowed to progress. Speaking in an interview with Isaac Worlanyo Walalce, the lawyer who doubles as Board Chairman, for the club said the court advised them to seek amicable solution. He said the club would hold the ‘olive branch’ and demand from the GFA to apply the rules but if they fail to do so, the club will go back to court. He indicated that the substantive matter has not been heard and the judge directed the two parties to go settle the matter out of court. The court told us to go and settle the matter but if we can’t settle, we are to come back for an expedite hearing. ‘’If the rules are applied fairly, nobody would come to court,’’ the lawyer told Rainbow Sports. Lawyer Amartefio, stressed that the team has always given the GFA an opportunity to do the right thing and initiating the court processes was not done in bad faith but to seek a just resolution of the matter. ‘’All the clubs must know that we are fighting for all of them, because what is happening to Olympics today, can happen to anyone of them. So they shouldn’t think that we are against any club just because we are against the GFA,’’ he added.
