October 4 – FIFA’s drip-drip series of sanctions of former senior officials has snared another scalp with ex-Equatorial Guinea FA president Domingo Mituy Edjang banned for four years for having “misappropriated FIFA funds”.
Mituy Edjang was found guilty of bribery and corruption related to FIFA funds received by his federation in 2014. That year, FIFA members received a grant of $250,000 plus an initial bonus of $250,000 from 2014 World Cup revenues.
In 2014, Mituy Edjang was a member of FIFA’s futsal committee, when the vice chairman was South American supremo Eugenio Figueredo. Figueredo was banned for life by FIFA on Wednesday for taking millions of dollars in bribes in the latest purge of those caught up in the FifaGate scandal.
