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."
