Controversies and critics[edit]

Francisco Kalbuadi Lay corruption scandal[edit]

The chairman of FFTL Francisco Kalbuadi Lay did not win the FFTL Presidential Race at the 2007 Extraordinary Congress; however, Kalbuadi continued his presidency until now. Pedro Carrascalao who claimed he won the Presidential Race, had not work at FFTL office since 2007. At 2007 Extraordinary Congress Carrascalao have 13 voting members who elected him as the President of FFTL. Carrascalao alleges that FFTL members were forced to call an Extraordinary Congress in 2007 after the organisation failed to hold a regular Congress – in which a Presidential vote would have been held – in the necessary timeframe. He says members were also greatly concerned about potential corruption within the organisation at the time. [16]

General Secretary: Amandio Sarmento Scandal[edit]

In February 2017, FIFA have terminated and banned General Secretary Amandio Sarmento of FFTL. Sarmento is banned for three years of football activity. Furthermore, Sarmento is guilty of using falsified documents in connection with the fielding of ineligible players by Timor-Leste. [17]
