Written by admin on November 23, 2020
Confederation of African Football president Ahmad Ahmad has been banned for five years by Fifa for breaching various codes of ethics.
The Fifa vice-president, 60, has been found to have breached codes relating to duty of loyalty, offering and accepting gifts, abuse of position as well as misappropriation of funds.
Ahmad, whose impending ban was announced by BBC Sport Africa last month, has also been fined 200,000 US dollars. He has previously denied any wrongdoing.
The Malagasy can appeal his sanction at the Court of Arbitration for Sport once he has received the full grounds for the decision, a process that can take up to 60 days.
Last month, the former head of Madagascar’s FA announced his intention to go for a second term in office when Caf elections take place next March.
