FIFA’s adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has found Enrique Sanz, a former general secretary of the Concacaf, guilty of bribery in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics, the organization announced Tuesday.
Sanz, a Colombian native, has been banned for life on participating in any soccer-related activity (administrative, sports or other) at the national and international levels. He also was fined $107,000.
The adjudicatory chamber found that Sanz had breached article 27 (bribery and corruption) of the 2019 edition of the FIFA Code of Ethics.
