[:fr]Fifa has provisionally banned General Secretary of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football CONCACAF, Enrique Sanz from football-related activities.
Concacaf is the continental governing body for association football in North America, Central America and the Caribbean and its President, Jeffrey Webb was arrested last week.
Webb was one of seven officials detained by the US Department of Justice on charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering.
In tandem with the seven arrests in Switzerland last Wednesday, the US Department of Justice also raided the headquarters of Concacaf in Miami.
The following day, Sanz, who had held his post since 2012, was placed on an immediate leave of absence by the confederation.
Fifa stated the action taken against him was “on the basis of investigations carried out by the investigatory chamber of the Fifa ethics committee and the latest facts presented by the US attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York”.
