Adamu loses FIFA appeal

Amos Adamu’s appeal against the FIFA Ethics Committee decision to sanction him has been thrown out by the FIFA Appeals Committee.

The Committee, under the chairmanship of judge Larry Mussenden from Bermuda, confirmed the decisions taken by the Ethics Committee on 17 November 2010.

Adamu, along with fellow executive committee member Reynald Temarii and five others, were handed varying fines and suspensions from football-related activities following a World Cup bribery scandal in the build up to the voting for the hosting rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Both men did not take part in the voting process.

Adamu has maintained his innocence and said last week he was confident the Appeals Committee would clear him.

The decisions, which were taken during a two-day meeting of the Appeal Committee held in Zurich on 2 and 3 February 2011, are as follows:

• Reynald Temarii: the appeal has been rejected and the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee confirmed. The sanction of a one-year ban from taking part in any football-related activity and a fine of CHF 5,000 has been maintained.

• Amos Adamu: the appeal has been rejected and the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee confirmed. The sanction of a three-year ban from taking part in any football-related activity and a fine of CHF 10,000 has been maintained.

• Slim Aloulou: the appeal has been partially upheld. The infringements as stipulated in the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee have been confirmed. The sanctions have been reduced to a one-year ban from taking part in any football-related activity (instead of a two-year ban) and a fine of CHF 5,000 (instead of CHF 10,000).

• Amadou Diakité: the appeal has been partially upheld. The infringements as stipulated in the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee have been confirmed. The sanctions have been reduced to a two-year ban from taking part in any football-related activity (instead of a three-year ban) and a fine of CHF 7,500 (instead of CHF 10,000).

• Ahongalu Fusimalohi: the appeal has been partially upheld. The infringements as stipulated in the decision of the FIFA Ethics Committee have been confirmed. The sanctions have been reduced to a two-year ban from taking part in any football-related activity (instead of a three-year ban) and a fine of CHF 7,500 (instead of CHF 10,000).

Ismael Bhamjee did not appeal the decision taken by the Ethics Committee in November 2010.
