MOSCOW (Sputnik) — FIFA’s chief investigator is seeking a lifelong ban for Alfredo Hawit, the former vice president of the world football’s governing body accused of corruption, the Ethics Committee said Friday.
Investigatory chamber chairman Cornel Borbely submitted a final report on the findings of his inquiry to the committee’s adjudicatory chamber.
"Borbely has recommended imposing on Mr Hawit a lifelong ban from taking part in any kind of football-related activity," the Ethics Committee’s statement read.
Hawit was arrested in Switzerland last December and extradited to the United States a month later on suspicion of receiving millions in bribes from sport marketing agencies. In April, he pleaded guilty to racketeering, wire fraud and conspiracy to obstruct justice in a New York court.
