FIFA has decided to release the entire executive committee of Football Association of Thailand (FAT) on Friday.
The decision came out after FAT president Worawi Makudi was suspended for 90 days on Monday over a possible breach of football’s governing body code of ethics.
FIFA also said on its statement that a normalisation committee is established to oversee the election of a new executive committee in the South-East Asian nation by February 16.
“The Fifa Emergency Committee has decided to remove the executive committee of the Football Association of Thailand from office and to appoint a normalisation committee in its place,” said FIFA.
FAT initially would set a new president election on October 17, with Worawi was due to stand against former national team manager Vanasthana Sajakul and regional police chief Pisan Jundilok, but postponed following Worawi’s suspension
“The FAT executive committee’s mandate had come to an end after the FAT elections previously scheduled to take place on 17 October 2015 were postponed,” added FIFA.
Worawi previously was also given a suspended 16-month sentence in last July by a Thai court for falsifying documents to amend the FAT statutes ahead of the vote in two years ago.
