Outcomes of OFC Executive Committee

The meeting was held at the OFC Headquarters in Greenlane and included the following attendees: Acting OFC President David Chung, Vice President Fred de Jong, Treasurer Claude Fournier, Executive Members Martin Alufurai, Lee Harmon, Lambert Maltock, observers Alex Godinet, Toetu Petana, Frank van Hattum, Dr. Sahu Khan, Lui Aho, Thierry Ariiotima, General Secretary Tai Nicholas, Deputy General Secretary Greg Larsen and general secretariat staff. All 11 Member Associations were represented.
First on the agenda was a discussion around the outcome of the FIFA Ethics Committee meeting held in Zurich from 15-17 November 2010.
The OFC Executive addressed the FIFA Ethics Committee’s decision to suspend Reynald Temarii from all football-related activity for a period of one-year as a result of breaching Article 3 (General rules) and Article 9 (Loyalty and confidentiality) of the FIFA Code of Ethics. In light of this suspension, David Chung will continue as Acting OFC President until the next OFC Congress.
A resolution was passed to postpone any decision on the date and venue of the 2011 OFC Congress until the OFC Executive Committee meet again in December 2010 to allow for additional documentation to be presented and analysed.
A discussion then took place around the appointment of a FIFA Vice President to replace Reynald Temarii as OFC’s representative.
The OFC Executive Committee believes it has the right to appoint a replacement FIFA Vice President for the remainder of the term. An enquiry has been made to FIFA to seek further clarification on this and no further comment will be made until such time as FIFA has responded.
With regards to the FIFA Ethics Committee’s decision to suspend Ahongalu Fusimalohi, no replacement will be sought for the vacant OFC Executive Committee position while the appeal process is still open to Mr. Fusimalohi.
