Malick Camara, one of the two contenders for the legal rights to Second Division Club EAST-BI has called on the Gambia Football Federation, GFF, to temporarily put a hold on all activities of the club until the dispute over the club is settled.
Two weeks ago, the GFF issued a statement announcing that its legal department recognised Joseph Sambou and Alieu Ceesay as the president and secretary general of the club and are therefore the legal representatives of the club. The GFF said this came after evidence at the Attorney General’s Chambers and correspondence with the cub over the years showed the duo are the right legal representative of the club.
But in a letter addressed to the GFF obtained by The Standard, Mr Malick Camara who claimed he is the president of the club demanded that the GFF share all relevant documents they mentioned in their letter with him. Camara questioned why as an important stakeholder, the GFF arrived at their decision without sharing whatever evidence they have with him or even mentioning him as president of the club. He accordingly advised the GFF to freeze all activities of the club until the dispute is solved.
