Last month, the court said it could not rule on the original case as it had been submitted too early. Liberia FA chief Musa Bility says his body has chosen to forego an appeal with CAF, despite CAS instructions.
“If we waited for the CAF appeal process to take place, it would cause irreparable damage,” said Bility.
“We cannot be living in the 21st century and trying to administrate football as though we were in the 18th century”
Bility says that any appeal would not be heard until CAF’s next General Assembly in March 2013, the same meeting when the presidential elections are due to be held.
On 30 November, CAS said it was unable to get involved as it recognised CAF’s own internal appeals procedure, which must be followed before any bid to the Switzerland-based legal sporting body.
The LFA has chosen to formally lodge its disapproval with CAF instead, protesting over the changes to the organisation’s statutes that took effect in September – which effectively meant that only current incumbent Issa Hayatou could contest the presidential election in March.
