FIFA extends ban of Timor-Leste FA General Secretary (FIFA.com) 06 Feb 2017

FIFA can today confirm the worldwide extension
of the ban imposed by the Asian Football
Confederation (AFC) Disciplinary Committee on
the General Secretary of the Timor-Leste Football
Association, who was found guilty of using
falsified documents in connection with the
fielding of ineligible players by Timor-Leste.
In accordance with art. 136ff of the FIFA
Disciplinary Code, the chairman of the FIFA
Disciplinary Committee has decided to extend the
three-year ban imposed on Amândio de Araújo
Sarmento from taking part in any kind of
football-related activity to have worldwide effect.
The relevant parties have been duly notified of
the chairman’s decision.
Members of the media with questions relating to
the substance of the decision are kindly
requested to contact the AFC.
The AFC’s investigations into the fielding of
ineligible players by Timor-Leste were
undertaken in conjunction with FIFA. After
receiving the file from the AFC, FIFA is now in
the process of completing its own investigations.
