FIFA is monitoring developments in Ghana after police raided the local FA’s headquarters and seized computers and files, the world governing body has confirmed.
“We are monitoring the situation (in Ghana),” FIFA said after Tuesday’s police raid on the Ghana FA (GFA) in Accra.
The GFA said plain-clothed officers from the country’s Economic and Organised Crime Unit (EOCU) removed nine computers and took the mobile phones of some members of staff.
“I believe that this is clearly an affront to the rule of law and without respect for good corporate governance,” GFA spokesman Randy Abbey added.
The GFA said the seizure of documents had “stalled all administrative functions”.
Two months ago the authorities requested information on all sponsorship contracts signed by the association, the GFA has said. The local governing body added it had sought extra time to gather the documents but had not received a response.
