Suspension of President and Ultimatum for Tunisian Football Federation

caf_iconAt its meeting in Malabo on February 6, 2015, the Organising Committee for the Orange Africa Cup of Nations dealt with the behavior of Mr. Wadie Jary, President of the Tunisian Football Federation, during the Match 26 between Tunisia and Equatorial Guinea on 31 January 2015 in Bata.

Thus, the AFCON Organising Committee decided to suspend with immediate effect the President of the Tunisian Football Federation, Mr. Wadie Jary from all activities related to CAF until he submitted a letter of apology or presented a letter with irrefutable, tangible evidence to substantiate claims of CAF bias against the Tunisian team.

The Executive Committee of CAF, which met on Friday, 6 February 2015 in Malabo, took note of the suspended sentence. The Committee also decided to give the Tunisian Football Federation until March 31, 2015 to comply with the recommendations of the Disciplinary Panel and the organizing committee, otherwise the Executive Committee of CAF will disqualify Tunisian national team from the next edition of the Africa Cup of Nations in 2017.
