Reports in the corridors of the Liberia Football Association (LFA) says the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court has granted George Solo’s application seeking for Declaratory Judgment.
According to the report, the Court also lifted the preliminary injunction to allow the LFA Election Committee grant George Solo due process in his complaint against Mustaphai Raji consistent with law.
According to legal experts, the LFA legal team’s decision not to take an exception to the court’s ruling means they agreed that they erred in denying George Solo due process after he had complained that Mustaphai Raji’s degree he presented to the Election Committee was fake.
This means the LFA Elections Committee will call a hearing for George Solo for him to prove that Raji shouldn’t have been cleared to contest the April 14 LFA election.
When will the hearing take place? only the committee can say as they were given today to communicate with parties involved.
There was no winner in the LFA Presidential race when the first ballots were counted on April 14.
Mustaphai Raji won the most votes in the first round, but could not win the Presidency because he did not get the required votes.
He and Musa Shannon were due to go for a runoff just before the court injunction was issued, placing a stay order on the process.
George Solo who is a Senior Executive of Newly Promoted First Division club Nimba FC filed a lawsuit against the LFA Elections Committee after the Committee said Solo did not give evidence to his complaint against Raji, as such the case was thrown out.
But Solo in reaction said he was not given a chance by the LFA Elections Committee to prove his case.
