FIFA has said there has been no ‘misuse of the funds’ it has given to the Sierra Leone FA (SLFA).
Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) president Isha Johansen was detained and questioned by Sierra Leone’s Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) this month over the issue.
“FIFA has no reason to suspect there has been misuse of funds that FIFA has provided to the SLFA,” FIFA wrote in a letter to the SLFA seen by the BBC.
FIFA also warned local authorities against interfering in SLFA business.
“In addition, over the course of the last three years, FIFA has noticed several activities of third parties that could be considered as interference in the running of the SLFA.”
“These have caused continuous instability to the legitimate and recognised leadership of the federation,” the FIFA letter, which was copied to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), added.
