Suspension: Adamu seeks relief at CAS

Suspended FIFA official, Amos Adamu, says he’s asking the Court of Arbitration for Sport to overturn his ban for allegedly seeking bribes during the World Cup bidding contests. The Nigerian says he’s taking legal advice to challenge his three-year expulsion from football which was upheld by FIFA’s appeals committee last Friday.

Adamu’s three-year ban for seeking bribes during the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding races was upheld Friday, February 4, 2011 by the governing body’s appeals committee.

Adamu says he’s “extremely disappointed” by the verdict, which upheld a FIFA ethics committee ruling last November that Adamu sought bribes from British undercover reporters posing as lobbyists.

Adamu and FIFA’s Vice President, Reynald Temarii, were barred from the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting votes.
Temarii also is appealing to CAS against his one-year ban for breaking confidentiality rules.
