FORMER GAMBIA FA BOSS JOINS KALU ON FIFA BAN
The FIFA Adjudicatory Chamber of the Ethics Committee once again strikes on the gallery of football bosses that accepted gifts and other benefits from the world governing body’s former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam.
Former Gambia Football Federation (GFF) Seedy Kinteh is the second on this long list of rogue officials. Former FAZ President and CAF Executive committee member Kalusha Bwalya was the first to be slapped with a FIFA ban earlier this year.
Offering and accepting gifts and other benefits violates the 2012 edition of the FIFA Code of ethics.
FIFA says its ethics committee found Kinteh guilty on charges of bribery and corruption, and accepting gifts. He has been fined 200,000 Swiss francs ($202,000) – coupled with a 4-year ban in all the sports related activities.
Kinteh was named in a 2014 investigation report by FIFA’s then-ethics prosecutor Michael Garcia for taking payments totaling $69,396 from Bin Hammam from February 2010 to April 2011.
Bin Hammam was suspended in 2011 days before the election against then-president Sepp Blatter after being implicated in bribing Caribbean voters.
And the list of football officials who accepted gifts and other benefits from Bin Hammam encompasses current CAF President Ahmad Ahmad.
