050 - UEFA calls for rapid decision on Michel Platini's case
UEFA's Executive Committee and UEFA's 54 national association met today at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland. The discussions centred on a variety of issues relating to the UEFA President Michel Platini. At the end of the meetings, the following statement was agreed:
"We support Michel Platin's right to a due process and a fair trial and to the opportunity to clear his name.
"We strongly call on all instances involved in the current process: FIFA's Ethics Committee, FIFA's Appeal Committee and, ultimately, the Court of Arbitration for Sport to work very rapidly to ensure that there is a final decision on the merits of the case by, at the latest, mid-November 2015."
