Cape Coast Pitch Invader, Awal Suleman Fined GH2,400 By Court

Awal Suleman, the Cape Coast Pitch invader has been fined GH2,400 by a court in Cape Coast.


It could be recalled that Awal Suleman jumped on to the pitch when Ghana played South Africa in the AFCON 2021 qualifier at the Cape Coast stadium.


The accused was granted bail on Saturday but appeared before court on Thursday, November 21, 2019, and pleaded guilty for disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. The charges according to Lawyer Asuama Yeboah were to serve as a deterrent to others.


Lawyer Asuama Yeboah Junior in an interview with the press right after court hearing explained that, “The court took a lot of factors into consideration. He is a first-time offender so he was charged with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest.


“Looking at the factors the court didn’t want to give him a non-custodian sentence but rather send a signal out there to deter others. So, he was given a fine of 200 penalty unites for the second charge which is the resisting arrest and for the first charge to sign a bond of good behaviour and in default three months in prison”.


He further said, Awal’s remorse after the incident and pleas from the Black Stars players and coach also factored in the verdict.
