DILI (31 May 2011) – The FIFA Executive Committee, chaired by President Joseph S. Blatter, decided to lift the suspension on Brunei Darussalam (NFABD, formerly BAFA) and extended the deadline for Indonesia FA (PSSI).
The committee took the decision on Brunei after ascertaining that the national association had fulfilled the conditions established by the FIFA Emergency Committee and approved statutes in line with the FIFA Statutes.
In the case of the Indonesia, the Executive Committee decided to give a last chance to the PSSI by granting the Normalisation Committee an extended deadline of 30 June 2011 to organise elections according to the relevant regulations and previous FIFA decisions.
In particular that the four banned persons remain ineligible, and to bring the breakaway league back under the control of the PSSI. The Executive Committee decided that, should the conditions not be met by 30 June 2011, the PSSI would automatically be suspended on 1 July 2011.
“They told us the PSSI must have an election before June 30, I hope this time we will have an election and end the leadership saga in the PSSI,” said Agum.
The Executive Committee also confirmed that the FIFA Club World Cup 2011 would be held in Japan as scheduled.
