Tunisia replies CAF with no apology

06 February 2015, 11:16

Tunis - Tunisia FA had until February 5 midnight to send a letter of apology to Confederation of African Football (CAF) or to present irrefutable evidence to substantiate their accusations.

The country has refused to apologize and in an interview with supersport.com, the FA spokesperson Nabil Daboussi he revealed their decision following a meeting held to discuss the sanctions.

"I would like to state that during the Tunisia FA executive Committee meeting held on Wednesday, it was decided that the protest letter sent to CAF was based on the poor officiating on the Tunisian- Equatorial Guinea match."

"CAF did take measures to punish the match referee. Tunisia was right in demanding for action."

"The content of the letter remains that the match official commited a multitude of errors. We have on the other hand sent a letter seeking audience with CAF executive for details and where applicable an answer for our requests"

This means that if CAF fails to grant them their wishes, more sanctions will be spelt out and a possibility of expulsion from 2017 African Cup of Nations.
