FIFA President Reacts To Suspension By Ethics Committee

FIFA President, Sepp Blatter, has responded to his provisional suspension from the world football’s governing body, claiming that the ethics committee “did not follow the code of ethics and disciplinary code”. Blatter, along with UEFA President, Michel Platini and FIFA General Secretary, Jerome Valcke, was suspended for 90 days in the early hours of Thursday, following approval by FIFA’s Adjudicatory Chamber of a recommendation made by the ethics committee. The sanctions against Blatter can be extended by up to 45 days. The 79-year-old has denied any wrongdoing and a statement released by his lawyers questions the conduct of the ethics committee. FIFA’s disciplinary body – the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, which is chaired by Judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, said that the bans come into force immediately and could be extended by another 45 days.
