According to SDNA's information, the HFF's Board of Directors, which had a meeting on Friday afternoon, not only refused to include the Ethics Committee FIFA had sent, in the terms of international standards, but not even discussed about that issue! The only thing president Giorgos Girtzikis told to the other members was that "you may have to visit us again soon".
Some members of the Hellenic Football Federation were claiming after the end of Board of Directros' meeting that "FIFA sent us the Ethics Code, but without deadline. We may speak about it in the next days, or during the summer"!
Meanwhile, SDNA's exclusive reportage on Wednesday was clear and specific: FIFA was asking for the "inclusion" of the Ethics Code on Thursday's meeting, in order to be in action since July 1!
Certainly, the officials of the HFF are clearly acting like this to earn some time, in order to avoid coming in front of the Ethics Committee for the disciplinary charges against the 7 people involved in the case of the "criminal organization" (Papakonstantinou, Prountzos, Papanikolaou, Ifantis, Spathas, Giachos, Dimitropoulos) who are still working in football.
What matters now is the reaction of FIFA. Will they force the Hellenic Football Federation to discipline and respect the recent agreement of the international federation with the Greek Government, or will they take even harder measures, with the creation of a temporary administration to control Greek football from now on, since the situation is currently unacceptable.
Mostly, we could expect a strong reaction from the Deputy Minister of Sports, Stavros Kontonis, who has repeatedly stated that if the HFF refuse to expel the people accused of criminal activity from football via the Ethics Committee, is intended to make changes in the current law system in order to expel them himself.
Of course, if Stavros Kontonis does such thing, is it definite that the danger of a football "Grexit" will return and the Hellenic Football Federation will be the one to be blamed for that.
SDNA understands that the Super League clubs are also willing to react against it. In the negative case for the Greek football ("Grexit"), they will sue the HFF for missing profit, asking it to compensate them.
