Ghanaian striker Benjamin Acheampong has been sentenced to three-years in prison for breaching a contractual agreement with his former agent Wael Kharbtawi.

The attacker was hit with the punishment after Wael Kharbtawi filed a lawsuit against his former client.

Kharbtawi did not receive his part of the share of the player’s transfer money to Egyptian Club Zamalek after breaking the deal for the former Kotoko forward.

This the court says Acheampong must pay Kharbtawi $23,000 in addition to his prison sentence.

The judgement was passed after countless effort to have the former WA All Stars player in court however evidential documents issued from Kharbtawi proved he had a case.

Ben Acheampong who currently plays for Qatari second division side Al-Shamal is expected to respond to latest verdict by the Egyptian court who have already served the Qatari Embassy with the decision.

The ex-All Black star ended his contract with Zamalek after failing to break into the team forcing his way to Al-Shamal after a brief loan spell with Petrojet also in Egypt.
