Astaphan contends that a Director of Audit must not be influenced by any political party or Minister, and such a person is subject to the laws of the land, especially as it relates to transparency and accountability.
Astaphan expounds further:

AND: Fifa president Sepp Blatter and Uefa boss Michel Platini have been suspended for eight years from all football-related activities following an ethics investigation. They were found guilty of breaches surrounding a £1.3m ($2m) "disloyal payment" made to Platini in 2011.
The Fifa ethics committee found Blatter and Platini had demonstrated an "abusive execution" of their positions.
Blatter later told media: "I will fight for me and for Fifa."
The bans come into force immediately. Blatter and Platini have also been fined £33,700 and £54,000 respectively.
