Nyantakyi To Return To Court On April 28

The case of Kwesi Nyantakyi, the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President and Abubakar Alhassan, ex-Chairman of Northern Regional Football Association (RFA) saddled in a football scandal following Tiger Eye PI expose, has been adjourned to ‪April 28‬, by an Accra High Court.
When the matter was called Nyantakyi was present but his accomplice, Alhassan was absent.
        Prosecuting Victoria Asieduaa, Principal State Attorney said the state would oblige the absence of Alhassan for today, but subsequently it would ask for bench warrant for his arrest.
         Ms. Asiedua said the state has filed the necessary disclosures but that was not exhaustive.
        The Principal State Attorney therefore prayed the court to grant her a week to file the rest of the disclosures.
       Mr. Richard Laapo, who represented Alhassan said his client could not make it to court because his flight was cancelled.
       Mr. Laapo who also held the brief of Mr. Thaddeus Sory, counsel for Nyantakyi, therefore prayed the court to excuse Alhassan for today.
          Nyantakyi and Alhassan have been charged with conspiracy to commit crime.
           Nyantakyi is facing additional charges of corruption by a public officer and fraud by an agent.
        They have however denied the charges and have been admitted to bail in the sum of one million cedis with three sureties each, one of the sureties is to be justified.
