FIFA Ethics Committee suspends Thailand's Worawi Makudi for 90 days
Worawi Makudi, the president of Thailand FA, has become the latest official to be suspended by FIFA's Ethics Committee for 90 days subject to an investigation.
It follows the announcement that FIFA president Sepp Blatter, UEFA president Michel Platini and former FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke had all been provisionally suspended for the same period. Both Blatter and Platini have both appealed against the suspensions.
A statement released by FIFA read: "The adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, has suspended Worawi Makudi, the President of The Football Association of Thailand and a former member of the FIFA Executive Committee, from all football activities at national and international level for 90 days. The ban is effective immediately.

"The decision was taken pursuant to the FIFA Code of Ethics art. 83 par. 1, on the grounds that a breach of the Code of Ethics appears to have been committed and a decision on the main issue may not be taken early enough.
"This decision against Worawi Makudi followed a request from the chairman of the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee, Dr Cornel Borbely. The case is now the subject of formal investigation proceedings."
