Perhaps, Ghana is set to witness what is likely to go down as one of the biggest family court with the ongoing marital brouhaha between Black Stars striker Gyan and his wife.
Reports gathered by YEN.com.gh on Mynewsgh.com has it that, Gifty has hired top Ghanaian law firm Kulendi & Associates, to battle her husband in court.
The reputable law firm, headed by the respected Lawyer Yoni Kulendi, is expected to represent her in court in the legal battle.
As at now, the firm has started its work by engaging the East Legon Police Station to help their client Gifty retrieve her passport and other documents which were seized by Baffour Gyan, the elder brother of her husband.
Meanwhile, Gyan’s family lawyer, Kissi Agyebeng, has reportedly declined to handle this case for the international football icon, according to the Mynewsgh.com report.
The reasons for the lawyer’s decision not to battle out in court for Gyan against his fiancée of 11 years and wife of five years, is currently unknown.
Readers will recall lawyer Kissi Agyebeng is the one handled the case of Asamoah Gyan’s alleged sodomy of Sarah Kwablah against Maurice Ampaw.
He is also the lawyer who handled the alleged assault by Baffour Gyan of Graphic Reporter Daniel Kenu in Kumasi. He is also a key transaction advisor of the Gyan Business Empire and contracts.
He has however refused to take on the case of Asamoah Gyan’s marriage.
This, according to the report, has forced the Gyans to hire the services of a former Graphic Communications Group employee now turned lawyer based in Tema, one Edwin Kusi-Appiah, to represent the Black Stars skipper in court.
Asamoah Gyan’s new lawyers have already started work, clarifying that the court case against Gifty Gyan who met Gyan in 2002 when he was with Liberty Professionals, cohabited and married in 2013, is not a divorce proceeding, but annulment.
“There are two ways to legally end a marriage – annulment and divorce. An annulment is a legal procedure which cancels a marriage between a man and a woman. Annulling a marriage is as though it is completely erased – legally, it declares that the marriage never technically existed and was never valid. A divorce, or legal dissolution of a marriage, is the ending of a valid marriage between a man and a woman returning both parties to single status with the ability to remarry,” the lawyers reportedly stated.
Meanwhile, in addition to annulling their marriage Gyan has also reported demanded DNA tests to be carried out on all three children he has with Gifty to determine their paternity.
