Mohamed bin Hammam ban extended

ZURICH -- FIFA has banned former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam for a further 45 days while bribery and financial mismanagement allegations are investigated.

FIFA says its ethics judge, Joachim Eckert, extended a 90-day provisional ban that was imposed in July to prevent the Qatari official working in football.

Bin Hammam's lifetime ban was overturned in July by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which suggested FIFA's prosecutor Michael Garcia could seek new evidence that Caribbean voters were paid $40,000 bribes.

Garcia is also examining how bin Hammam managed Asian Football Confederation accounts and contracts while president.

FIFA opened separate disciplinary proceedings last week to decide if bin Hammam has breached the provisional ban.

Bin Hammam's lawyers denounced the "jumped-up charges" against him, and want FIFA President Sepp Blatter's election tactics investigated.
