This follows the decision made by the FIFA Ethics Committee on 20 October 2010 to temporarily suspend OFC President Reynald Temarii.
OFC welcomes the opportunity for Mr Temarii to be able to present his case to the FIFA Ethics Committee in respect to the alleged breach of the FIFA Code of Ethics.
Further to information made public by The Sunday Times, the OFC President and FIFA Vice President Temarii will cooperate fully with the FIFA Ethics Committee and the FIFA Secretary General.
OFC will continue to cooperate fully with the proceedings if required.
Temarii said: “He welcomes a full and thorough investigation so that all the facts can be heard.”
And in accordance with the OFC Statutes, Senior Vice President David Chung is the Acting OFC President.
It is business as usual for OFC and no further comments will be made until the FIFA Ethics Committee has dealt with this matter.
