FIFA panel bans two former Honduran soccer officials for life

World soccer governing body FIFA‘s independent ethics committee on Monday (December 19) 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.

Hawit and Callejas were among 16 people charged last December with bribery schemes for marketing and broadcast rights in a dismantling of a Latin American soccer network by U.S. prosecutors.
