The court of Arbitration for Sports has released a ruling reducing CAF President Ahmad Ahmad’s five years ban from football activities to two years.
The decision was made public this Monday, March 8 after careful deliberation on the five years suspension initially metted by the Adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee in November 2020.
The former Confederation of Africa Football President, Ahmad Ahmad was found of breaching various codes of ethics guiding football administration.
-Duty of loyalty
-Offering and accepting
gifts or other benefits
-Abuse of position
-Misappropriation of funds.
The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee found Ahmad Ahmad guilty of having breached art. 15 (Duty of loyalty), art. 20 (Offering and accepting gifts or other benefits) and art. 25 (Abuse of position) of the 2020 edition of the FIFA Code of Ethics, as well as art. 28 (Misappropriation of funds) of the 2018 edition plus wrongful cancellation of the 12 years Largadere Sports.
Consequently, the adjudicatory chamber suspended Mr Ahmad football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level for five years.
But this Monday, CAS has reduced the ban to two years after which Ahmad can return to football.
In addition, the CHF 200,000 Ahmad was initially charged to pay has been reduce CHF 50
Ahmad is therefore ineligible for the current CAF elections and will only be back in football in November 2022.
