Bin Hammam given new 90-day ban

FIFA have issued a provisional 90-day ban on Mohamed bin Hammam to undertake further investigations after his lifetime ban from football was overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

• Bin Hammam's ban overturned

FIFA's executive committee found former Asian Football Confederation president Bin Hammam guilty of paying bribes to Caribbean Football Union officials while campaigning against Sepp Blatter for the FIFA presidency.

Though he was then cleared by CAS, he remained subject to a 30-day AFC suspension, which FIFA extended worldwide, and it has now been stretched to 90 days as investigations into allegations of financial mismanagement are conducted.

A FIFA statement read: "At the request of Michel J. Garcia (chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee), Hans-Joachim Eckert (chairman of the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee) today provisionally banned Mohamed bin Hammam from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level for a period of a maximum of 90 days.

"The decision was taken based on art. 83 par. 1 in fine of the FIFA Code of Ethics, in order to prevent interference with the establishment of the truth in respect of a preliminary investigation initiated pursuant to article 62 par. 2 of the FIFA Code of Ethics.

"The investigation aims inter alia at assessing the PwC report of 13 July 2012 in respect of potential misconduct on behalf of Mr bin Hammam in the light of the provisions of the FIFA Code of Ethics and at assessing the prospects of collecting further evidence relevant to the recently closed CAS proceedings in the case of Mr Mohamed bin Hammam v/ FIFA as well as at undertaking investigative efforts to this end."
