Charles Puozing, one of the legal counsels of former Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantekyi, has dismissed the charges levelled against his client.

Charles Puozing explained that Kwesi Nyantekyi pleaded not guilty to all allegations levelled against him based on the level of confidence they have about the State’s chances of proving the charges in Court.

Charles Puozing explained that based on the level of confidence they have about the State’s chances of proving the charges in Court, Kwesi Nyantekyi pleaded not guilty to all allegations levelled against him.

“We have pleaded not guilty to those charges and the basis is that it is our view that these are not charges that can be proven by the state,” the lawyer asserted.

The state on Wednesday formally charged the former GFA President on allegations of fraud and corruption.

A former member of the Association’s Executive Committee Abdulai Alhassan also faces two charges; conspiracy to commit fraud and fraud.

Kwesi Nyantekyi, who has been banned for life by FIFA after he was seen allegedly engaging in fraudulent activities in a documentary dubbed, Number 12, was granted bail to the tune of GHC1 million.

But Lawyer Puozing explained that the State’s case is dead on arrival because, “basically it is like you are on your own and somebody just suddenly appears and says that I want you to help me do ABCD and this is your reward and subsequently turns around and tells you that you have committed an offense and such things I don’t think that they are permissible under the law.”

“You cannot induce somebody and turn around and say that the fellow has committed an offense,” he added in an interview with press after the court proceedings.
