Adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee bans football official Kalusha Bwalya




The adjudicatory chamber of the independent
Ethics Committee has banned Kalusha Bwalya, member of the executive committee
of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), for two years from all football-related
activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and
international level.

The investigation against Mr Bwalya was
opened on 28 February 2017, and focused principally on benefits that Mr Bwalya
had received from Mr Bin Hammam.

The adjudicatory chamber found Mr Bwalya
guilty of having violated art. 16 (Confidentiality) and art. 20 (Offering
and accepting gifts and other benefits) of the FIFA Code of Ethics. A fine in the
amount of CHF 100,000 was also imposed on Mr Bwalya.

The decision
was notified to Mr Bwalya
today, and the ban comes into force immediately.
