Former FIFA executive committee member Amos Adamu of Nigeria’s faces a second ban of unethical conduct.
The judging chamber of the FIFA ethics committee says it has opened proceedings after ethics prosecutors requested a two-year ban for charges including conflict of interest.
Adamu was investigated in a Micheal Garcia-led probe of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding contests. However, no more details have been specified yet.
Adamu was an executive committee member in 2010 when Russia and Qatar won hosting rights. He suffered an sting operation by British newspaper, The Sunday Times, and was unable to vote as he got suspended by the ethics committee for seeking bribes.
Adamu was later banned for three years and lost his positions with FIFA and the Confederation of African Football.
According to judges Amos Adamu is allowed to request a hearing.
