The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court has fixed Tuesday, October 25, to hear the interlocutory injunction against the Ghana Football Association.

Ashantigold Sporting Club on September 28, this year, filed an application for an interlocutory injunction to stop the three weeks old Ghana Premier League after they were demoted to the second division over a match-fixing scandal.

They were on October 14 allowed by the court to file their motion on notice to seek leave.

In court on Thursday, October 20, Counsel for Ashantigold, Edward Sam Crabbe moved the motion for leave to file a supplementary affidavit (additional documents) in support of their interlocutory injunction.

The lawyer for the GFA, Naa Odofoley Nortey told the court that, they have been served with the application but they do not oppose the request.

The Human Rights Court 1 presided over by Justice Barbara Tetteh-Charway ordered Ashgold (Applicant) to file their supplementary affidavit by the close of today, October 20.

The court consequently, fixed, Tuesday, October 25, for the interlocutory injunction to be heard.

While Ashantigold was represented by Dr Kweku Frimpong, the GFA was represented by its president Simon Kurt Okraku, Prosper Harrison Addo, Habiba Atta, Dr. Anthony Aubynn, George Amoako, Nana Sarfo and Kingsley Osei Bonsu.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Court 2 presided over by Justice Nicholas Mensah Abodakpi will on that same day, conduct a mini-trial in the case in which some 14 GFA top officials have been dragged to court for contempt.
