FIFA bans Napout for life

ZURICH, Sept 14, (Agencies): FIFA has banned former soccer official Juan Ángel Napout for life, almost 21 months after he was convicted on racketeering and corruption charges in a Brooklyn court.

FIFA says its ethics committee judges found Napout guilty of bribery between 2012 and 2015, and fined him 1 million Swiss francs ($1.01 million). It is unclear how FIFA can enforce payment.

Napout was a FIFA vice-president, and leader of South American soccer body CONMEBOL, when he was arrested in Zurich in December 2015.

The US Justice Department had requested a second wave of arrests at a luxury hotel in FIFA’s home city in a sweeping investigation of soccer corruption.
