Dear MJ,

I have just returned from Dubai, where I had a meeting with my group -

Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Pakistan,

Nepal, Tajikistan, Turkmenisstan, Kyrgyzstan and Usbekistan and all these

countries agreed to support Mr. Bin Hammam for President, you for FIFA

Vice President and myself for FIFA Exco Member. Allready Sri Lanka,

India, Bhutan, Nepal and Tajikistan have signed your Nomination. In

addition Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Maldives, Usbekistan and Pakistan will

send your Nominations directly to the AFC to Mr. Bin Hammam. Kyrgyzstan

President said he will meet you in Korea.

Mr. Bin Hammam is campaigning very hard for you and told me today that you

were going to visit Jordan and Kuwait. The Jordanian Prince Ali tried to

meet my group and most of them refused to see him in Dubai, when he came

to Dubai specially to meet them . Kuwait is his promoter.

You are in a strong position with Mr. Hammmam, myself and Warawi all

supporting you. In my Group of 13 minimum you will get 10 votes.

Therefore, you should not compromise yourself with Jordan and Kuwait

because they will show you as weak and say you are coming to them. People

will misunderstand, so please be very careful. Unless you are officially

invited by them, please do not go. This is my sincere advice.

Like I worked for Hammam last time I will work for him and you this time,

do not worry we are winning.

I will be in Australia from the 22nd of Oct to the 28th and in New Zealand

from the 28th of Oct to the 5th of November, from the 5th of November to

the 7th of November in Singapore. You may contact me any time.

With kind regards.

Yours sincerely,


Manilal Fernando
