The three-man panel led by Justice J.A Ojaiko dismissed the petition on technical grounds, that both the first and second petitioners abandoned their petitions.
The tribunal dismissed all applications filed on behalf of the AAC by Awara.
The tribunal also dismissed for incompetence another application for a pre-trial hearing.
