FIFA Finds EX Afghanistan Football Federation President ‘Guilty’ Of Sexual Abuse Claims, Bags Life Ban From Football-Related Activities

The former president of the Afghanistan Football Federation (AFF), has been banned for a lifetime from all soccer-related activities for abusing his position and sexually abusing female players, FIFA announced on Saturday.

FIFA’s independent Ethics Committee found Keram breached article 23 (protection of physical and mental integrity) and article 25 (abuse of position) of its Code of Ethics.

He was subsequently, sanctioned with a life ban at all degrees of the overall game, with an excellent of 1,000,000 Swiss francs ($1.01 million).
