Madagascar Suspensed

On 19 March 2008, FIFA was informed that the Supreme Court of Madagascar had rejected an appeal from the Malagasy Football Association (FMF) to defer a ministerial order dissolving the FMF. Consequently the suspension of the FMF and the measures stipulated in art.14 par.3 of the FIFA Statutes took effect on 19 March 2008, in accordance with a decision passed by FIFA’s Executive Committee on 14 March. Similarly, in compliance with art.17 par.2 and 3 of the same statutes, FIFA refused to recognise either the “special delegation” that the Minister of Sports intended to set up or any decisions that this body might take.
