JFF and Beach Soccer Jamaica heading back to  court

The Jamaica Football Federation  and  Beach Soccer Jamaica will be heading back to court.

This as   the  JFF in  a  release  this  morning  says  it   has been served with a notice of appeal, through  its lawyer Kysian Kennedy-Sherman of TWP lawyers – filed on behalf of Patricia Garel as president of bBeach Soccer Jamaica. 

A  injunction   which  was  discontinued  last  Friday  by  the  Supreme  Court  was refused on the basis that there was no serious issue to be tried and that the applicant has not established that they are either an affiliate or a member of the JFF. 

The JFF  in  the  release  is  expressing  confidence in securing a favorable decision on the appeal.

In  the  meantime  the jff is on course to set a new date for elective congress, in order to ensure that the members are not disenfranchised.

As a result of this being in violation of the JFF constitution and the FIFA statutes, the  federation advised  in  the  release   that  it  repeatedly contacted both presidential candidates to give their views on the court action. 

President Ricketts stated that he is opposed to the action, especially as it goes against the provisions of the jff constitution and the FIFA statutes and is a deliberate attempt to deny the legitimate members a right to exercise their vote for the development of football in Jamaica and for Jamaicans.

Vice  president  Anderson did not  comment on the matter.
