FIFA ethics judges ban Qatari election candidate for one year

The FIFA ethics committee has given Saoud Al-Mohannad a one-year ban.

ZURICH -- FIFA's ethics committee has imposed a one-year ban on Qatar's candidate for election to the ruling council of world football's governing body.

The committee ruled that Saoud Al-Mohannadi "did not cooperate with the investigatory chamber in the proceedings against a third party."

The ban blocks Al-Mohannadi, a vice president of the Qatar Football Association and the Asian Football Confederation, from a Feb. 28 FIFA Council election in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The election was scheduled for September but delayed in an apparent protest by Asian members of FIFA against the ethics case.

The ethics committee said Al-Mohannadi breached his "duty to collaborate as a witness in separate proceedings," but did not specify the case.

It previously said the issue did not involve the 2022 World Cup bidding contest, which was won by Qatar.
