JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE Federation of International Football Associations has confirmed the worldwide extension of the two-year ban imposed on the vice-president of the Equatorial Guinea Football Association, Gustavo Ndong Edu, for match-fixing.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Disciplinary Board effected the ban earlier this month for attempts to offer money to the match officials of the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations qualifier between Equatorial Guinea and Mali played in April.
The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has in turn decided to extend the two-year ban from taking part in any kind of football-related activity.
FIFA said it would continue ongoing efforts to combat match manipulation through a variety of initiatives, which include the monitoring of international betting markets via FIFA’s subsidiary Early Warning System and a confidential reporting system with a dedicated integrity hotline and e-mail address.
