The Ghana Football Association's Disciplinary Committee has thrown out a protest filed by Ghana Premier League sides Aduana Stars and Ebusua Dwarfs seeking points deductions against giants Hearts of Oak.
The DC has dismissed the case outright stating in its ruling that the cost awarded against Hearts by the Status Committee is not a specific ruling to cost Hearts match points if they fail to pay the money in a specified period.
The two clubs were asking the GFA to award three points and three goals each to them as specified by the FA's match regulation after Hearts failed to pay a $40,000 compensation to former trainer David Duncan.
Hearts insisted they followed due procedure and filed stay of execution but Aduana and Dwarfs claimed otherwise.
Aduana Stars CEO Albert Commey, a former Hearts of Oak communications head was confident of claiming all three points from the boardroom after losing 1-0 to the Phobians at the Agyeman-Gyawu Park in mid-February.
Dwarfs, who drew 0-0 with Hearts in last week of February, joined Aduana to seek for extra 2 points and chase deductions but they have ended suffering a $2,200 fine along with their Dormaa-based counterparts in the case.
However both clubs have a right to appeal against the decision but neither of them have officially responded to the ruling yet.
