Albert Commey and Takyi Arhin caught in BIG LIE over CAS ruling claims
Albert Commey claims both Palmer and GFA have received summary verdict

Albert Commey and Takyi Arhin have been caught in a gargantuan imagination after claiming both the appellant and defendant in the case involving Wilfred Kweku Osei "Palmer" and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) have been served with the Executive Summary of the verdict. 

The claim by Commey - the current chief executive of Techiman Eleven Wonders and his predecessor Takyi Arhin is turning out to be hoax following further probing by local journalists.

GHANAsoccernet.com checks with both the appellant and the defendant have revealed no summary verdict has been delivered to the parties.

Indeed, there is no executive summary from the global tribunal to question the bold claims from both Albert Commey and Takyi Arhin.

"Both Palmer and GFA have received the summary of the verdict but it is up to Palmer who is the complainant to release the it to the public," Albert Commey claimed on Angel FM

"I will not blame the GFA if they decide hold the verdict because they are not the complainant."

Given the massive public interest in the case, the claim by Commey and Arhin, who are staunch supporters of current FA boss Kurt Okraku has surprised many.

Palmer is seeking to overturn last years Ghana FA Presidential election after being disqualified.

The global tribunal body confirmed Tuesday August 4 as the date to announce the verdict to bring to an end a 10-month litigation which has far reaching implication for the administration of football in the West African nation.

While several watchers had been keen on the much-awaited verdict, CAS swerved Ghanaians by refusing to release the final judgment on Tuesday after initial postponement from July 17.

These are frenetic times for the followers of both disqualified Osei and current FA boss Kurt Okraku.

Palmer dragged the FA to the apex of world sports court after he was disqualified from contesting the 2019 Presidential election by the Normalisation Committee.

There are two things likely to happen - CAS to throw out the case and allow the status quo to remain or order for a re-run of the election if it was deemed the plaintiff was unfairly disqualified from the race.

CAS will announce the decision whether to uphold Palmer's quest to annul the election and order for fresh polls to decide on a new President for the GFA or allow the status quo to remain.

The situation has put the presidency of Kurt Okraku on the line with wide-reaching implications if Palmer becomes successful.

The ruling from CAS will put to rest months of intense anxiety involving all the principal actors.

An initial ruling on July 17, 2020 was postponed to Tuesday August 4, 2020.
