Neymar took Barcelona took court claiming the club owed him a whopping €43.6 million (R848 million) from his salary and a signing-on fee, but the social court in Spain has now dismissed his claims.

Neymar must now pay Barcelona €6.7million (£6m) for losing the court case.

It is understood that Neymar was eligible for a bonus if he was still in Barcelona on 31 July 2017, with his move to PSG only being completed on 3 August that year.

However, the Blaugrana had reportedly found out about his intention to leave Barca before 31 July and opted to keep parts of his renewal bonus, which saw the player and his entourage take the club to court.

Neymar reportedly came close to returning to Barcelona ahead of the current season and remains keen on a move back to Camp Nou.

The Electoral Commission (EC) has debunked claims to the effect that the Electoral Management Body is carrying out an agenda to remove the names of National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) supporters and sympathizers from the voters’ register.

The EC is asking the general public to disregard the allegations, stressing it is false. “The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency, and Accountability.

Indeed, at every point, we have provided factual, accurate, and evidence-based information to our Stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age among others. To date, every interested Ghanaian has information on the number of persons who registered in the just concluded Voter Registration Exercise based on the information we provided.

“It is a paradox, therefore, to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the Voters Register. Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to Stakeholders throughout the Registration process. We assure the General Public that these allegations are unfounded,” a statement by the Electoral Commission read.
