Fifa bans two ex-Honduran officials for life

ZURICH: World soccer governing body Fifa’s independent ethics committee on Monday imposed life-long bans on two former Honduran officials for involvement in a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme to which both have pled guilty. Rafael Callejas, former president of the Honduran football Association (Fenafuth) and a former member of the Fifa Marketing and TV Committee, and Alfredo Hawit Banegas, former acting president of Concacaf — the confederation that runs soccer in North and Central America, as well as the Caribbean — were banned from all national and international soccer-related activity, the ethics committee said.
