The FIFA Ethics Committee, chaired by Claudio Sulser (Switzerland), met in Zurich this week regarding the ethics proceedings that were opened in October against Caribbean Football Union (CFU) officials.

These proceedings related to apparent violations of the FIFA Code of Ethics connected to the investigation of cases following the special meeting of the CFU held in Trinidad and Tobago on 10 and 11 May 2011.

These cases follow on from the decisions taken on 14 October 2011 involving other CFU officials.

The decisions taken this week were as follows:

Patrick John (Dominica) has been banned for a period of two years from taking part in any football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) and has received a fine of CHF 3,000.

Vincent Cassell (Montserrat) has been banned for a period of 60 days from taking part in any football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) and has received a fine of CHF 300.

Raymond Guishard (Anguilla) has been banned for a period of 45 days from taking part in any football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) and has received a fine of CHF 300.

Noel Adonis (Guyana) has been banned for a period of 30 days from taking part in any football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) and has received a fine of CHF 300.

Tandica Hughes (Montserrat) has been banned for a period of 15 days from taking part in any football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other).

Everton Gonsalves (Antigua and Barbuda) has been banned for a period of seven days from taking part in any football-related activity (administrative, sports or any other) and has received a fine of CHF 300.

Derrick Gordon (Antigua and Barbuda) has received a reprimand and a fine of CHF 300.

The cases of Oliver Camps (Trinidad and Tobago), Lionel Haven (Bahamas, CFU) and Patrick Mathurin (St. Lucia) were closed since they are no longer football officials. Should they return to football official positions, their cases would be examined again by the Ethics Committee.

Philippe White (Dominica) and Damien Hughes (Anguilla) were considered not to have committed any violation.
