CAS dismisses Palmer’s case against GFA

The Court of Arbitration for Sports has thrown out a case filed by Wilfred Kwaku Osei ‘Palmer’ challenging the decision for his disqualification in the GFA elections.

“The appeal filed on 14 October 2019 by Mr. Wilfred Kwaku Osei against the Ghana Football Association(GFA) with respect to the decisions rendered on 4 October 2019, respectively 8 October 2019 by the Elections Committee of the Respondent is dismissed,” CAS said in a ruling on the long-drawn legal battle between Palmer and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The tribunal was expected to announce the outcome of what has been a prolonged challenge, having rescheduled the date of their ultimate decision from July 17 to August 4.

Palmer dragged the national football’s governing body to court over the displeasure of being “unfairly” disqualified from the GFA’s presidential election in October last year.
