The Human Rights High Court has dismissed the case of AshantiGold SC against the Ghana Football Association (GFA) holding that the club was given a fair hearing by the judicial bodies of the Association in the match manipulation matter.

In the judgment read to parties yesterday in court, the judge held that Ashantigold SC fully participated in both the investigation and the proceedings before the Disciplinary Committee and were given a fair hearing and all opportunities to defend themselves.

The judgment went on to indicate that Ashantigold SC did not establish that the Match Commissioners' Report or the Referees Report would have helped their defence in any way, and therefore, no injustice was caused to them when those documents were not used in the proceedings.

The Human Rights High Court concluded that AshantiGold SC were given a fair hearing before the Disciplinary Committee and the Appeals Committee of the Ghana Football Association, and therefore dismissed the suit.
