Fifa in 2015 prohibited Worawi, a previous member of its executive committee, from football activities for 5 years for forgery and falsification of files ahead of the 2013 FAT governmental election which he won.
The order followed the Southern Bangkok Wrongdoer Court handed Worawi a suspended 16-month prison sentence in 2015 for wrongfully altering the election guidelines ahead of the 2013 surveys.
The Court of Appeals ruled last month that the 64-year-old was innocent.
Complainant Pattaya FC did not take the case to the Supreme Court, and the Southern Bangkok Wrongdoer Court stated in a declaration dated Might 26 that the case had actually ended.
At an interview the other day, Narinpong stated Worawi would ask Fifa to raise the restriction.
If the governing body stops working to do so, Worawi will take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the legal representative stated.
” Worawi strategies to take legal action against Fifa as the damage triggered to him by the restriction deserved about one billion baht,” stated Narinpong.
