May 27, 2013, 11:25 AM

Sheriff Jammeh, Johnny Gomez and Alieu Jallow, the leaders of Lawn tennis, Boxing and cricket, have taken another court action to block the GNOC extra-ordinary Annual General Meeting, slated for today Monday 27 May.

The AGM was advised by the International Olympic Committee, as a road map to discuss and settle disputes between the camps within the Olympic family, and in accordance with the GNOC constitution and the Olympic Charter.

The IOC had condemned the initial court action taken by the trio against holding of elections last March. But a copy of the a high court order seeking to restrain members of the GNOC bureau members from holding the extraordinary congress Monday was received at the Point over the weekend.

There has not been immediate reaction from any quarters yet, but a legal expert yesterday informed this paper that it means that the court is ordering the GNOC from holding AGM until the case is heard on June 8.
