The commissioner of Labour, V.N Fraser–Davies (Ms), has written a letter to Mohamed Kallon addressed to Tunde Scott, the manager of Kallon FC.
The content of the letter revolves around:”Request for Intervention for non-payment of salary, benefits and return fare to Liberia due Philip Dkarnga footballer for FC Kallon”.
The letter states that, “I am directed to refer to the above subject regarding Philip Dkarnga who is an employee of FC Kallon and has requested our intervention… The ministry wishes to inform you that you have contravened the labour laws of Sierra Leone by employing a foreign national without a work permit. In the light of the above, you are invited to a meeting in the office of the Hon Deputy Minister of Employment and Social Security, New England.”
The letter goes further: “please bring along all relevant documents pertaining to the issue (such as contracts condition of service, payment voucher etc) so as to enable us to resolve the issue”.
Meanwhile, as Mohamed Kallon the chairman of the club is at present not in the country Tunde Scott, the team manage, represented him at the meeting with the commissioner last Friday. Scott told the commissioner that they had not signed any contact with Philip.
He stated that the only thing they could do as a club was they were going to pay the player’s fare back to Liberia as they were no more interested in him.
Speaking to Awoko Sport about the issue, Philip said he would never leave Freetown for Liberia without receiving his money in full.
He noted that when he spoke to Mohamed Kallon about the money he promised to give the money to Tunde Scott but that when he contacted Tunde Scott on the issue it was a different story.
The Liberian player noted that he had been in this situation for the past months now and that some time it was very difficult for him to have food.
