FIFA's Ethics Committee recommends life bans for Luis Bedoya and Sergio Jadue

Published Add your comment

FIFA's Ethics Committee has recommended life bans from football for former CONMEBOL vice-presidents Luis Bedoya and Sergio Jadue.

The pair each pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy in December, having been indicted as part of the long-running criminal investigation into corruption with FIFA.

A separate investigation by the Ethics Committee has now concluded and chairman Dr Cornel Borbely has passed his recommendations to the committee's adjudicatory chamber, chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert.

A FIFA statement read: " In his final reports, the chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee recommended imposing on both Mr Bedoya and Mr Jadue a lifelong ban on taking part in any kind of football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) for an alleged violation of the general rules of conduct (art. 13 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE)), loyalty (art. 15 FCE), duty of disclosure, cooperation and reporting (art. 18 FCE), conflicts of interest (art. 19 FCE), bribery and corruption (art. 21 FCE) and general obligation to collaborate (art. 41 FCE)."

Until November, 56-year-old Bedoya was president of the Colombian Football Federation and 36-year-old Jadue held the same role with the Chilean Football Federation.
