Police Await GFA Statement In ITC Fraud
Thursday, 20 April 2006
The self-styled football agent, Sammy Ali, who was being held by the Madina Police for issuing fake International Transfer Certificates, has been granted bail.
The Divisional Commander of the Police station Chief Superintendent Elizabeth Allandu told Joy Sports the Ghana Football Association, the body charged with the issuance of ITCs, would submit its written statement tomorrow to facilitate investigations into the case.
Sammy Ali has denied all the charges brought against him by the GFA in his first interrogation by the Police on Wednesday. However, Chief Superintendent Allandu says the case will be brought before the court before the end of the week.
Sammy Ali, who represents Slovakian Club FC Senec in Ghana, was arrested last Thursday for issuing fake ITCs for the transfer of former Hearts of Oak attacker, Abdul Samad Okocha to Austrian club FC Casino Brengez last year and three other Ghanaian players between January 2005 and February 2006.
