FIFA executive committee member Vernon Manilal Fernando of Sri Lanka was provisionally banned from any football activity for 90 days on Monday, FIFA said in a statement.
 
Fernando, 63, has been a member of the FIFA executive since 2011 and was banned following a request by Michael Garcia, the chairman of the investigatory chamber of the ethics committee and Hans-Joachim Eckert, the chairman of the adjudicatory chamber of the committee. Fernando is a former close ally of banned ex-FIFA executive committee member Mohamed Bin Hamman.

In its statement, FIFA said the decision was taken "based on Article 83, Paragraph One of the FIFA Code of Ethics, in order to prevent interference with the establishment of the truth with respect to proceedings now in the adjudicatory chamber".
 
Bin Hamman was banned from football for life last year following his involvement in a bribery scandal surrounding the FIFA presidential election in 2011.(Reuters)

    till he get to this post his name was written all over football activities to upgrade the game in sri lanka.since then though he grew up in FIFA till get banned nothing much have heard he done to football sri lanka. Men's national team just completed the asia cup qualifiers in LAOS with less sucsess though the young team with the capable local support team did well to compete with much organized teams. no media covered any of the matches/results to atleast let the football loving peopal in SL. but all village cricket & school sports meets were well reported. I think the officials in football sri lanka too need to be banned together for not handling SLF professionally. If I'am not wrong SL football it self can be banned from FIFA for not holding the local league reasoning for not having sponsers. God bless football Sri lanka. via DM Android App
