Presidential Commission of Inquiry Adjourns First Sitting To Wednesday August 13

The Presidential Commission of Inquiry set up by the government of Ghana to investigate Ghana’s participation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup on Monday adjourned their first sitting of the investigation process when they asked the various invited institution to go back and prepare themselves adequately.

The Ministry of Foreign affairs, Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Bank of Ghana were all given prior notice on Friday August 8 to appear before the Commission on Monday August 11 and answer questions concerning Ghana’s participation at the World Cup.

But the Commission which is made up of Supreme Court judge Justice Senyo Dzamefe, Kofi Anokye-Darko and Sports enthusiast Moses Foh-Amoaning postponed the sitting indicating the notice sent to the invited institutions was short and have therefore allowed them to go back and prepare sufficiently and appear before the Commission on Wednesday August 13 from 10:00am-5:00pm.

The Commission has been mandated to look into issues concerning the preparation of the Black Stars, the course of the team’s exit from the competition, treatment of fans in Brazil as well as the remuneration for players and officials during the competition.
