Financial Misconduct: FIFA Bans CAF President Ahmad For Five Years

Financial Misconduct:  FIFA Bans CAF President Ahmad For Five Years

Confederation of African Football (CAF) president and FIFA vice-president Ahmad Ahmad has been handed a five-year ban for breaching the FIFA Code of Ethics.

The decision was released on Monday by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the independent Ethics Committee, which found that Ahmad had breached various articles of the FIFA Code of Ethics, including a duty of loyalty, offering and accepting gifts or other benefits, abuse of position, and misappropriation of funds.

Ahmad’s ban follows an investigation into his conduct as CAF president between 2017 and 2019, and related to the “organisation and financing of an Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca, his involvement with CAF’s dealings with sports equipment company Tactical Steel and other activities”.

As a result, the 60-year-old has been slapped with a five-year ban from all football-related activities at both national and international level, while he was also handed a CHF 200 000 (R3.3 million) fine for his indiscretions.

The announcement comes just days after the Ethics Committee found Yves Jean-Bart, the president of the Haitian Football Association and former FIFA standing committee member, guilty of having abused his position, and having sexually harassed and abused various female players, including minors, and handed him a lifetime ban.

      Can Amaju withstand Pratise Motsepe, the billionaire owner of mamelodi sundowns of South Africa with all the corruption cases hanging over his neck in Nigeria….? I doubt it.

      Amaju Pinnick is backing the candidacy of Mosepe for CAF Presidency, while he vies for membership of FIFA Executive Council which I know he will achieve.

    FIFA be ready for Nigeria. A certain man wants to distract Rohr and overhaul the super eagles. Please prepare your hammer for him.

    fifa and its Africa bans again? them never still tel us watin siasia do them, which match did siasia sold? I can’t believe that in this smart generation simple questions like this can remain unanswered. fifa need more transparency in dealing with crimes bcos it’s an international body not one European nations organisation, they can’t just sit down and begin to ban elected officials from their offices the disrespect is becoming too much if they have any fraudulent report on the caf President they should present the evidence to caf bodies and let caf ban the president by thier selves. why will fifa do the baning from their office. that is dictatorship it’s almost same with dare’s overhauling things.
