The Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF) is concerned about the respect and image of football in South Africa, following the raid by the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation Unit on the South African Football Association (SAFA) Headquarters.

CAF is looking into this matter based on and in accordance with the CAF and FIFA Statutes and Regulations and has requested SAFA to provide CAF with a Report, indicating that SAFA and its President, Dr Danny Jordaan at no stage and under no circumstances, violated or breached the CAF and FIFA Statutes and Regulations.

Whilst the allegations made by the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation Unit are serious, in line with international legal principles and jurisprudence, SAFA and Dr Danny Jordaan are presumed to be innocent until an appropriate Judicial Body concludes otherwise.

CAF has also requested SAFA to provide it with any other information or facts which SAFA and Dr Danny Jordaan would like to bring to the attention of CAF.
