Suspended Black Stars midfielders, Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng, will be among the headline-makers when the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Black Stars’ Brazil 2014 World Cup fiasco begins its sitting next Monday.
The chairman of the Commission, Justice Senyo Dzamefe, hinted the Graphic Sports in an exclusive interview at the African Regent Hotel yesterday.
The soft-spoken Appeals Court Judge, who preferred to keep those to appear before the Commission to his chest until sitting began, however, made particular reference to Muntari and Boateng, who were at the centre of the Stars’ chaotic campaign as some of the people who are likely to be invited to give evidence before the three-man body.
“For instance, some players who were sanctioned during the tournament will be given the opportunity to give their side of the story,” he signalled.
Asked how the foreign-based players would be flown down to appear before the Commission now that the European leagues are in session, Justice Dzamefe said the Ministry of Youth and Sports would be tasked to liaise with the clubs involved to ensure the players’ release.
“I don’t think that will be a problem since the players will be needed for just one day. if there is the need to invite any player the Ministry will liaise with their clubs to bring them down,” he stressed.
