    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA independent Ethics Committee opened on Tuesday proceedings against Vice-President of the Qatar Football Association (QFA) Saoud Al-Mohannadi.

    "The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee, under its chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert, has opened formal adjudicatory proceedings against the Vice-President of the Qatar Football Association (QFA) and former General Secretary of the QFA, Saoud Al-Mohannadi, based on the final report submitted by the investigatory chamber," the adjudicatory chamber’s media release said.

    On August 26, the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee issued a report revealing Al-Mohannadi’s failure to provide truthful information to the chamber in the framework of an investigation that is not related to the awarding of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

    The report recommended imposing a ban of at least two years and six months as well as a fine of no less than $20,000 on the official for violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics.

    Al-Mohannadi was provided with the report and invited to submit his position on the issue.
