ZURICH (AP) - FIFA has suspended executive committee member Vernon Manilal Fernando while investigating corruption allegations in soccer.

FIFA says the member from Sri Lanka has been banned from taking part in any soccer activities for a maximum of 90 days "to prevent interference with the establishment of the truth" during an ethics investigation.

The suspension relates to the investigation by FIFA prosecutor Michael J. Garcia into the alleged misuse of Asian Football Confederation accounts.

FIFA hasn't disclosed any specific allegations against Fernando.
