FIFA bans JFF's Horace Burrell

No Comments
President of the Jamaica Football Federation, Captain Horace Burrell, has been slapped with a six month ban by FIFA's Ethics Committee following investigations into bribery allegations against Caribbean Football Union (CFU) officials.
Burrell has been banned from taking part in any football related activity, be it administrative, sports or any other.
The Ethics Committee has however decided to suspend three months of the ban, subject to a probationary period of two years.
This ruling effectively rules Burrell out of the running for the presidency of the CFU.
CFU elections are due on November 20.
JFF General Secretary Horace Reid was given a warning along with David Hinds and Mark 'Bob' Forde of Barbados and Yves Jean-Bart of Haiti.
On Tuesday a video was posted on the internet showing former CFU President Austin 'Jack' Warner encouraging CFU executives to accept cash 'gifts' from Mohamed bin Hammam.
Burrell and Reid were Jamaica's representatives at the meeting.
The video was used by the FIFA Ethics Committee in its investigation.
