Anyone Found To Have Committed Illicit Acts Has No Placed In Football-FIFA On Amad’s Arrest

Zurich (National Times)-World Football Governing Body  (FIFA) has issued a statement in reaction to the Thursday June 6th arrest of CAF president Ahmad Ahmad in France asserting that,  anyone found to have committed illicit or illegal acts  has no place in football.

Below is the entire statement.

“ FIFA has taken note  of the alleged events  concerning Mr Ahmad Ahmad, who is being questioned by French Authorities in relation to allegations related to  his mandate while  president of CAF.

FIFA is unware of details surrounding the investigation and is therefore not in a position to make any comment on it specifically.

FIFA is asking the French authorities for any information that might be relevant  to investigations taking place within its Ethics Committee.

As a Matter of due process, everyone has the right to the presumption of innocence, but as the FIFA president reiterated yesterday, FIFA is fully committed to eradicating all forms  of wrongdoing at any level in football. Anyone found to have committed illicit or illegal acts has  no place in football.

FIFA is now clean from the scandals that tarnished  its reputation and the same determination should prevail in governing  bodies such as confederations. FIFA will be  at the forefront of ensuring  that this is  enforced by everyone involved in football”.
