Almost a week to the start of the much talked about Premier League season the Secretary General of the football team of the Sierra Leone Police Football Team Aroun Sundufu Sowa has replied the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) Acting Secretary Elma Kamara on the decision taken against the Police Football team in their protest against Kamboi Eagles FC.
In the letter which was sent to the Sierra Leone Police it states that since no provision of the SLFA Constitution or the Rules and Regulations of the competition was violated by Kamboi Eagles in using the six (6) players during their match on Monday 3rd November 2008, thus Kamboi Eagles has no case to answer.
In this regard the Sierra Leone Police wasted no time in replying to the letter stating that their response to the findings by the SLFA Secretariat is that they “totally reject the decisions as your Secretariat was not the appropriate body to take decision.”
They further stated that two reminder letters were sent and in the second letter of reminder dated 23rd February, 2009 their grounds of protest were clearly stated which was that one of the players they were protesting against was Alie Fofanah, whom Kamboi Eagles claims to be their player was registered with Diamond Stars for the 2009 season as he did in 2008, signifying that he was illegally used by Kamboi Eagles in that match.
The reply further stated that they have rejected the deliberation /decision of the 27th November, 2008 by the SLFA Secretariat as the Secretariat was not the competent body to deliberate on such matters and a quorum should have been formed by the appropriate body that is Players Status Committee (Art 51) to sit on the matter.
In conclusion the Police football team Secretary General called for a fair decision a re-visit of their protest saying they will appreciate a favourable decision.
