Later on November 4, ANFA President Ganesh Thapa announced that he would remain in suspension for 120 days from footballing activities. Thapa´s suspension ended Wednesday while the Commission for Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) on February 18 decided to put on hold its investigation on Thapa.
