Manilal loses appeal against life ban from soccer

Former FIFA executive committee member, Sri Lanka’s Manilal Fernando has lost his appeal against a life ban from soccer for bribery and corruption, media reports said.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport said Monday its panel has dismissed Fernando's challenge to the ban.

Fernando, a Sri Lankan who is a former ally of Mohamed bin Hammam, was banned for life by the FIFA appeals committee in October 2013 for multiple ethics violations.

FIFA never specified details of the case, though cited code of ethics rules relating to bribery, conflicts of interest and accepting gifts.

FIFA ethics judge Joachim Eckert had suspended Fernando for eight years. That sanction was challenged by then-FIFA ethics prosecutor Michael Garcia, who sought a life ban.

Fernando was a FIFA regional development officer, overseeing funds distributed by a panel chaired by Bin Hammam, when Asian member federations elected him in 2011 to join the governing body's executive committee. - See more at: http://www.dailymirror.lk/67755/manilal-loses-appeal-against-life-ban#sthash.5vMR06St.dpuf

Yes No
THE DAY'S QUOTE

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS

Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
