The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) has extended the time limit to communicate the ruling of the much-awaited Wilfred Kwaku Osei (Palmer) versus Ghana Football Association (GFA) case.
The new date for the communication of the Arbitral Award to the parties has been extended until August 4, 2020.
CAS said the extension is pursuant to Article R59 of the Code of Sports-related Arbitration. CAS’ final decision on the case was initially fixed for July 17, 2020.
For the past 10 months, Palmer has been seeking justice at CAS after he was disqualified from the 2019 GFA Presidential elections.
The Tema Youth President was disqualified on two count of charges which included failure to pay transfer commission to the football association as well as failure of the integrity test.
After his disqualification by the Vetting Committee Palmer filed an appeal which was swiftly rejected.
He later filed an appeal against the decision of the Normalisation Committee at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
Last month CAS issued a communique spelling out the procedure and period of the release of their verdict on the matter pending before the body. CAS had set July 17, 2020, as the date to announce its decision but this has now been extended until August 4, 2020.
