FIFA opens proceedings against Webb

The ethics arm of world football’s governing body has opened formal proceedings against former FIFA Vice-President Jeffrey Webb, who also formerly served as President of CONCACAF and the Cayman Islands Football Association.

The ethics committee’s adjudicatory chamber opened proceedings against the Cayman Islands native, following an investigatory report.

“The final report was transmitted to the adjudicatory chamber on 26 April 2016, with a recommended sanction of a lifelong ban from all football-related activities,” FIFA’s Ethics Committee said in a statement.

Webb was arrested in May in Zurich, along with six other current and former FIFA officials, as U.S. authorities announced a sweeping investigation of corruption in soccer. The arrests were part of a wider U.S. probe of bribery and kick-back-related offences that has rocked the sport’s governing body.
