Bin Hammam’s lifetime FIFA ban annulled by Court of Arbitration for Sport


Mohamed Bin Hammam has had his lifetime ban from FIFA annulled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, media reports state.

The CAS has not cleared Bin Hammam of wrong-doing, but said there was a lack of evidence for the ban imposed by the ethics committee for bribery a year ago.

The move, which the Guardian is saying will cause “huge embarrassment” to FIFA, comes just days after Bin Hammam was provisionally suspended from the Asian Football Confederation.

The Guardian reports:

He was alleged to have breached a number of AFC regulations including relating to gifts and bribery. Sources close to Bin Hammam say the allegations are further attempts to tarnish his name.

Bin Hammam always claimed the Fifa action against him was retribution for having challenged Blatter for the presidency.
