Buriram sue Worawi in election row

- +

Thai Premier League club Buriram United yesterday filed a lawsuit against acting Football Association of Thailand (FAT) president Worawi Makudi and his acting secretary-general Ong-arj Kosinkha for allegedly using forged documents and providing false information to a government official in the run-up to last month's election for FAT chief. 

In a suit file with Bangkok's Criminal Court, Buriram United manager Tadthep Pitakpulsin claimed the two made changes to the FAT regulations which were approved by the organisation's members before submitting it to a registrar at the Local Administration Department (LAD), which oversees all associations in Thailand, between Aug 23 and Oct 14.

He said Worawi's and Ong-arj's terms expired on June 16 and they were supposed to hold a conference to elect the organisation's new president and executive members but they refused to hold such a meeting.
