Tue 7th May 2013 | FIFA
FIFA have confirmed that former CONCACAF General Secretary and FIFA Ex-Co member, Chuck Blazer has been provisionally banned for 90 days.
Blazer will be banned from taking part in any football-related activities after FIFA’s Ethics Committee found him in breach of a numbers of FIFA’s Code of Ethics.
A statement released by FIFA read:
“The chairman of the adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee, Hans-Joachim Eckert, has decided to provisionally ban FIFA Executive Committee member Chuck Blazer from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level for a maximum period of 90 days.
“The decision was taken following a request made by the acting deputy chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, Robert Torres, based on the fact that various breaches of the FIFA Code of Ethics appear to have been committed by Chuck Blazer and that a decision on the main issue could not be taken early enough.
“The investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee previously opened investigation proceedings against Chuck Blazer in response to the final report of the CONCACAF Integrity Committee (cf. www.concacafintegrityreport.com). The CONCACAF General Secretary, Enrique Sanz, asked FIFA to assume jurisdiction in “view of the serious alleged misconduct” and the implications for FIFA.”
