UEFA RAISES CONCERNS WITH MACEDONIAN FA
FIFA and UEFA have sent a letter to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Macedonia following the closing down of the Macedonian FA offices on 15 January and the holding of some of the members of its management at the ministry for long hours.
FIFA and UEFA are surprised by these actions by the Macedonian Interior Ministry, in a move that violates the principles of autonomy that applies throughout the sports movement," the world and European football bodies said in a statement on Tuesday.
FIFA and UEFA are asking the Macedonian government to bring the situation back to normal and to immediately stop interfering in the running of the football association," the statement added. In the coming days and weeks, FIFA and UEFA will determine what action to take in response to the situation that has occurred in Macedonia should the Macedonian government continue its interference, which contravenes article 17 of the FIFA statutes.
