Mr Deguara, the Auditor General of the National Audit Office, is also a member of the Malta FA Appeals Board.

“On behalf of the Malta FA, I congratulate Charles Deguara on his appointment as member of the UEFA Governance and Compliance Committee,” Norman Darmanin Demajo, the Malta FA President, said.

“It is an honour for our country and Maltese football in general that UEFA has chosen Mr Deguara for this important post which has been ratified by UEFA’s member associations at today’s Extraordinary Congress.”

The other new member of the UEFA Governance and Compliance Committee is Josè Juan Pinto Sala, a Spanish lawyer and Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Arbitrator.
