Some individuals who were implicated in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative documentary titled “Number 12” by Tiger Eye PI have been charged, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced.
The GFA Prosecutor who is handling the case has began charging them.
Former Greater Accra RFA Chairman Nii Komiete Doku and Mr. Kofi Manu have both been charged for abuse of position contrary to Article 25(1) of the GFA Code of Ethics, 2019.
They have also been charged for bribery contrary to Article 27(1) and (2) of the GFA Code of Ethics, 2019.
Both are expected to submit their written statements of defence by Thursday, September 24, 2020 at the GFA Secretariat on or before 4:00pm or through firstname.lastname@example.org.
They may however choose the option for a personal hearing before the GFA Ethics Committee on a date and time to be communicated.
Should they fail to choose any of the options, the Ethics Committee shall proceed to adjudicate the case in their absence.
Meanwhile the GFA Prosecutor will send charge sheets to other individuals who were implicated in the investigative documentary.
This is coming after the GFA officially requested Anas Aremeyaw Anas to provide it with the full recording of the incident.
The GFA Prosecutor was appointed this year and this is among the major cases that the Prosecutor is handing this year.
