FIFA ethics judges open case against Thai official Makudi

22 July 2016, 19:19

Zurich — FIFA ethics judges have opened a case against former executive committee member Worawi Makudi of Thailand, who faces a four-year ban for alleged election forgery and other misconduct.

The FIFA ethics committee judging chamber says Makudi can request a hearing and submit evidence.

FIFA ethics prosecutors requested a ban of at least four years and a 25,000 Swiss franc ($25,500) fine.

Charges against Makudi include "forgery and falsification" and refusing to cooperate with investigators.

The case relates to Makudi's 2013 re-election to lead the Thailand football federation.

Makudi was a member of FIFA's tainted executive committee for 18 years until Asian federations voted him out in April 2015.

He was a longtime ally of former FIFA presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam.
