Inter Allies have appealed the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to fight the decision to demote the club to Division 2 over match manipulation charges.
In the 15-page appeal, the club noted that Emmanuel Nii Amoah, who has been accused of receiving money from AshantiGold SC was not an official of Inter Allies.
According to Inter Allies, his actions as alleged in no way benefited the club. Inter Allies insisted that they not be punished since the said player acted in his own interest.
â€œThe Disciplinary Committee failed to appreciate the fact of INTER ALLIES FC being a corporate entity could only by law be bound by actions of its lawful representatives or designated/sanctioned officials and as such any action or inaction purporting to be carried out by a third party without proof of the approval of the football club has no effect on the club.â€
â€œThat Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association erred in law when it relied on the failure of Emmanuel Nii Amoah to provide proof of the direct involvement of INTER ALLIES FC as a basis for imputing complicity on the part of INTER ALLIES FC,” the club wrote in the document sighted by The Independent Ghana.
On Monday, May 16, the GFAâ€™s Disciplinary Committee revealed that AshantiGold SC had been found guilty of Match Manipulation in their 2020/21 Ghana Premier League Matchday 34 game against Inter Allies FC.
In view of this, AshantiGold SC would be demoted from the Ghana Premier League to the Division Two League at the start of the next football season
Some players of the two teams have been banned and both clubs fined GH100,000.
Meanwhile, Inter Allies have in their appeal called on the GFA to rescind its GH100,000 fine.
