FIFA panel suspends, fines Thai soccer chief Worawi
FIFA’s disciplinary committee on Monday banned the former head of Thai football Worawi Makudi for three months and fined him 3,000 Swiss francs (USD 3,000, 2,700 euros) for violating the terms of a previous suspension.
Worawi was replaced as head of the Football Association of Thailand (FAT) in a vote this month after a long scandal-filled tenure.
FIFA initially banned him for 90 days in October over ethics violations and extended that suspension by 45 days last month.
A FIFA disciplinary on Monday found that Worawi “was still involved in FAT affairs” during his initial three month suspension, breaching the terms of the ban.
Worawi, a FIFA executive committee member for 18 years until May, has faced multiple allegations of wrongdoing. He was found guilty in July by a Thai court of forgery in his reelection as head of FAT.
