Dominica Football Association Extends President's Ban

Dominica Football Association President Patrick John has been banned from administration, after serving in his role for more than 16 years, according to CARIBBEAN360.com. He is banned for the remainder of his term, which was due to expire in '15. Media reports have said that the association of football clubs voted 24-7 "to place a total ban on its president." The ban comes after FIFA placed a two-year ban on John in Nov. '11 from all football activity and fined him 3,000 Swiss francs for taking part "in an alleged bribery plot." Others said to have been involved include former FIFA presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam and former Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football President and sitting Minister Jack Warner (CARIBBEAN360.com, 7/2).
