“CAS has postponed the ruling of the case between Palmer and the GFA to 1st September”, a source close to Palmer confirmed to ghanasportspage.com. They have not done anything wrong by postponing the ruling for the second time per their rules, it is normal. Per their rules, within 90 days they have the right to postopne a ruling”, the souce continued.
Despite describing the postponement as “normal” according to the rules of CAS, the source revealed that Team Palmer is however surprised that they were not served a prior notice by the world sports court.
“What surprises us a little is if they want to postpone a ruling they normally inform you in writing two days before time, but I think this one escaped them a little, but per the rules on their website it is normal, that withing 90 days, if they give promise they could extend it. It either means they are not done with administrative works about the case or otherwise”, the source explained.
