NEW DELHI: FIFA Council Member Constant Omari, who is also the President of Congo FA, was provisionally released on Wednesday, after being held for 21 hours as part of an embezzlement probe. 

He was arrested along with his two deputies -- vice-presidents Roger Bondembe and Theobad Binamunguwere -- and sports ministry secretary-general Barthelemy Okito by anti-corruption police.

The magistrate explained the four were “currently being heard” over the use of public funds in the organisation of matches in African competitions involving national sides as well as clubs, reported AFP.
