While FIFA strongly condemns the incidents and considers such actions to be totally unacceptable, we would like to remind all relevant parties, in particular the individuals who invaded the PFF premises, that the Normalisation Committee of PFF, established by a decision of the Bureau of the Council and later ratified by the FIFA Council, and which is currently led by your person, is the sole executive body of PFF recognised by FIFA,” read the letter.
“Furthermore, we would like to inform you about a correspondence dated 28 March 2021 that FIFA received today in which it is alleged that an extraordinary Congress was held on 26 March 2021 by certain Members of the PFF, and during which a decision was apparently taken to hand over the leadership of the PFF to Mr Syed Ashfaq Hussain. In view of the above, FIFA further considers that the illegitimate occupation of the PFF headquarters as well as any decision to take over the leadership of the PFF from the normalisation committee appointed by FIFA, constitutes an undue interference in the affairs of the Federation, therefore violating the obligations imposed on PFF by art. 14 par. 1 let. i) and art. 19 of the FIFA Statutes.”
FIFA said the suspension would mean that PFF loses all of its membership rights, as defined in art. 13 of the FIFA Statutes, with immediate effect and until further notice, including, but not limited to, the right of PFF’s national teams or any of its clubs to participate in any international competitions, as well as the right of PFF and its Members to benefit from FIFA’s financial/development programmes.
