The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee, chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, has opened formal adjudicatory proceedings against Adamu based on the final report submitted by the investigatory chamber.
Former FIFA and CAF executive committee member Amos Adamu is to face another FIFA ban over breaches of ethics. He was first banned for three years and fined in November 2010 by the FIFA ethics committee for breaching bribery rules.
The investigations against Adamu conducted by Cornel Borbély, chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, were opened on 9 March 2015 and the final report was passed to the adjudicatory chamber on 2 December 2016.
In the final report, the investigatory chamber recommended a sanction of a two-year ban from all football-related activities (administrative, sports and any other) and a fine of CHF 20,000 for violations of arts 13, 15 and 19 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE).
The adjudicatory chamber under its chairman Hans-Joachim Eckert studied the report carefully and decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings against Adamu, who will be allowed to state his own case.
