The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has reduced the life ban of former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi to twelve years.
Kwesi Nyantakyi was fined $500,000 and banned for life from all football activities in October 2018 after he was captured in an investigative documentary engaging in various fraudulent activities.
The documentary was released by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and titled “Number 12”.
“The adjudicatory chamber found Mr Nyantakyi guilty of having violated art. 19 (Conflicts of interest), art. 21 (Bribery and corruption) and art. 22 (Commission) of the FIFA Code of Ethics,” FIFA said in a statement.
“As a consequence, Mr Nyantakyi is banned for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level.
According to Owusu Bempah Ayala of Nhyira FM, the new development was communicated to FIFA and Kwasi Nyantakyi on Monday.
However, the new development is yet to be confirmed by any of the parties involved.
