FIGC President Giancarlo Abete admits they were relieved to have ruled the 2006 Scudetto should stay with Inter Milan.
On Monday the Federation ruled it was "unable to act" after new evidence emerged in the Calciopoli trial in Naples that the Nerazzurri had also attempted to influence referees.
"I hoped that Inter would've foregone the statute of limitations in this case.
"There is no statute of limitations on ethics," said Abete. "We had to stick to the rules. If the rules do not satisfy some, then that is out of our hands."
