More officials banned by Fifa for role in bribery scandal
Friday 18 November 2011
Six more officials from the Caribbean have been banned by FIFA for varying periods for their roles in the bribery scandal that rocked the world governing body earlier this year.
The bans, of between two years and seven days, have been imposed by FIFA's ethics committee on the officials for breaching ethics rules.
The cases are the fall-out from the scandal that saw FIFA presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam banned for life for offering or making cash gifts to officials from the 25 Caribbean Football Union associations at a special meeting in Trinidad on May 10.
Patrick John (Dominica) was banned for two years and fined 3,000 Swiss francs; Vincent Cassell (Montserrat) was banned for 60 days and fined 300 Swiss francs; Raymond Guishard (Anguilla) was banned for 45 days and fined 300 Swiss francs; Noel Adonis (Guyana) was banned for 30 days and fined 300 Swiss francs; Tandica Hughes (Montserrat) was banned for 15 days; Everton Gonsalves (Antigua and Barbuda) was banned for seven days and fined 300 Swiss francs and Derrick Gordon (Antigua and Barbuda) received a reprimand and a fine of 300 Swiss francs.
A FIFA statement added: "The cases of Oliver Camps (Trinidad and Tobago), Lionel Haven (Bahamas, CFU) and Patrick Mathurin (St Lucia) were closed since they are no longer football officials. Should they return to football official positions, their cases would be examined again by the ethics committee.
"Philippe White (Dominica) and Damien Hughes (Anguilla) were considered not to have committed any violation."
