FATHER & SON: AshantiGold President and CEO charged for match manipulation

After hitting both AshantiGold and Inter Allies with misconduct relating to match manipulation last week, two officials of the former – Dr. Kwaku Frimpong and son Emmanuel – have also been charged by the GFA Prosecutor.

The GFA has been investigating the controversial final day fixture of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League between the clubs which saw Allies defender Hashmin Musah scoring two own goals in a 7-0 defeat to the Miners at Len Clay Stadium.

Parts of the findings have necessitated a decision to charge the Miners’ Club President and his son who is the Chief Executive Officer.

A GFA publication Monday said the actions of both were in breach of the GFA Code of Ethics, Disciplinary Code and Premier League regulations and have so been charged on three counts of misconduct for match manipulation.

“The President and Chief Executive Officer of the Club were both charged for breaching Article 27(1) and 27(2) of the GFA Code of Ethics, Article 18(1) of the GFA Disciplinary Code and Article 34(5)(a) and 34(5)(b) of the GFA Premier League Regulations.

“The two club officials are expected to submit their Statements of Defence to the charges on or before Wednesday, September 22 after which the GFA Disciplinary Committee will adjudicate their cases respectively,” portions read.

“The GFA Prosecutor is expected to release more charge sheets for some officials and players,” the publication added.
