FIFA ethics prosecutors want former FIFA vice president Alfredo Hawit banned for life for taking bribes.
The investigatory chamber of FIFA’s ethics committee says the ban is requested in a final report to ethics judges. A verdict is expected within weeks.
Hawit pleaded guilty in Brooklyn federal court in April to charges of racketeering conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
The 65-year-old Honduran official agreed to forfeit $950,000 upon sentencing.
Hawit was acting president for CONCACAF when he was arrested at a Zurich hotel last December.
