Fifa has banned Confederation of African Football (Caf) executive committee member Musa Bility for 10 years and fined him $500,000 for breaching its code of ethics.
Football’s world governing body found the former Liberia FA (LFA) president “guilty of having misappropriated Fifa funds, as well as having received benefits and found himself in situations of conflict of interest”.
Fifa said it has been investigating the 52-year-old since May 2018 following a forensic audit of the LFA.
The misappropriation of Fifa funds relates to those granted under the global body’s “11 against Ebola” campaign and as part of its Financial Assistance Programme.
Bility has said that he will be considering how he can appeal against the Fifa sanctions.
