Amos Adamu Faces 2-year FIFA Ban
Amos Adamu, former president of West African Football Union (WAFU) and one-time member of CAF and FIFA executive committee, is facing another FIFA ban.
This would be his second ban after serving a 3-year ban that lasted from 2010 till 2013 for being guilty of soliciting bribes.
The ban was recommended as punishment for alleged breaches of FIFA’s Code of Ethics. The investigation by the investigatory chamber of the governing body into these misconducts started March 2015 and the final report was passed to the adjudicatory chamber on 2 December 2016.
“In the final report, the investigatory chamber recommended a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activities (administrative, sports and any other) and a fine of CHF 20,000 for violations of arts 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).”
The three articles he ran afoul of cover general rules of conduct, loyalty and conflict of interest – of its Code of Ethics.
“For reasons linked to privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the adjudicatory chamber will not publish further details at the present time,”
