Partey's family absorbes Awal's court fine

Published on: 21 November 2019

Thomas Partey's father has paid the court fine charged on pitch invader Awal Suleman to avoid a three-month jail sentence.

Awal Suleman invaded the Cape Coast stadium during the Black Stars AFCON 2021 Qualifier against South Africa and has been slapped with an insignificant GHC2, 400 or risk serving a three-month jail sentence in place.

The former 400m runner said his reason for the pitch invasion was to meet his idol Thomas Party, who was playing for the Black Stars in the continental qualifiers.

Having already met the Atletico Madrid Talismam after he was released from police custody, the family has fully absorbed the penalty to financially liberate Awal.

Mr. Jacob Partey, the father of the Ghanaian enforcer, pledged to pay the full penalty slapped on Awal Suleman.

The court fine is expected to serve as a caution to other pitch invaders ahead of the new domestic campaign.
