Should PSSI be Banned...???

Decisions of the FIFA Executive Committee on PSSI.

Letter from FIFA to Agum Gumelar - Chairman of the Normalization Committee of the Football Association of Indonesia (PSSI), Jakarta.
Zurich, 30 May 2011
Dear Mr Chairman, following the latest events which surrounded the Football Association of lnconesia (PSSI), the case was debated during the FIFA Executive Committee meeting held on 30 May 2011 in Zurich. The FIFA Executive Committee regretted that your efforts did not yield the expected results, and that the football situation in Indonesia was still characterised by deep turmoil. It took also note of the obstructive attitude of some members who prevented the elections from taking place during the elective congress on 20 May 2011.

The FIFA Executive Committee was as well briefed on the concerns of the highest Indonesian authorities with regard to their fear of potential adverse consequences and the subsequent commitment by the Head of State made to the Chairwoman of the Indonesian National Olympic Committee that FIFA conditions would be fully implemented from now on. Under these circumstances, the FIFA Executive Committee decided to grant PSSI a last chance to fulfill the conditions of FIFA or to face an automatic suspension as of 1 July 2011. The FIFA Executive Committee thus decided to extend the deadline of the PSSI normalisation committee until 30 June 2011 with the following mandate:
  • to organise elections of new office bearers according to the relevant regulations and previous FIFA decisions (see our letters from 4 April 2011, 21 April 2011, 6 May 2011, 11 May 2011). In particular the four banned persons remain ineligible
  • to bring the breakaway league back under the control of PSSI or at least have it stopped. The FIFA Executive Committee stressed that the continuation of the LPI league constitutes a serious threat to the basic principles of organised football and thus cannot be tolerated.
Should these conditions not be met by the set deadline, the PSSI will be automatically suspended as of 1 July 2011 until further notice. In this case, the FIFA Executive Committee delegated to the FIFA administration the authority to change the composition of the PSSI Normalization Committee, in consultation with the AFC.

We would like to underline that a PSSI suspension would mean that the PSSI would lose all its membership rights (cf. art. 12 of the FIFA Statutes). In particular, no Indonesian team of any sort (including clubs) could have any international ccntact (cf. art.14 par.3 of the FIFA Statutes). 
This would thus prevent Indonesia from participating in the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers, and also probably prevent its participation in the upcoming SEA Games. But it would also mean that neither PSSI nor any of its member or official could benefit from any development programme, course, or training from FIFA or AFC any longer.
