HC asks BFF to return 8 Sk Jamal footballers

March 29, 2016

The High Court on Monday directed the Bangladesh Football Federation not to allow eight footballers to play for any other club except Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club.
The court also directed BFF to explain in four weeks why its failure to take action for not returning the eight prayers to Sheikh Jamal Club after Bangabandhu Gold Cup was over on January 19 would not be declared illegal.
A bench of Justice Quamrul Islam Siddique and Justice Razik-Al Jalil passed the order after hearing a writ petition filed by Sheikh Jamal Club challenging the legality of not returning its players despite repeated requests to the BFF.
Sheikh Jamal also sought a directive on the BFF to return the players to the club ahead of the independence club tournament.
Petitioner’s lawyer Ruhul Quddus Kazal said Sheikh Jamal Club now can get return of the prayers following the High Court’s directive.
The eight footballers are Mamunul Islam, Nasir Chowdhury, Sohel Rana, Raihan Hasan, Yeamin Ahmed Chowdhury Munna of Chittagong Abahani, goalkeeper Shahidul Alam Sohel of Dhaka Abahani and Alamgir Kabir Rana and Jamal Bhuiyan of Sheikh Russell KC .
They joined their respective clubs from Jamal during the just concluded players’ transfer window.
Jamal argued that the eight players took advance money from them to play for the side in the upcoming season but later opted for other clubs.
Jamal’s football committee chairman Ashraful Uddin Ahmed Chunnu said despite their repeated request BFF did not response and they were compelled to bring the matter to court.
BFF general secretary Abu Nayeem Shohag said they will face issue legally.
‘We have heard about the move of Sheikh Jamal but still don’t know anything officially,’ he said. ‘We will also take the legal steps once we will be informed officially.’
