FIFA Ethics Committee bans Mr Samson Siasia for life

Former Nigeria national team player and coach, Mr Samson Siasia, has been banned from all football-related activities for life following a match-fixing probe by the Ethics Committee of the world governing body FIFA.

The adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s independent Ethics Committee found that Mr Samson Siasia was “guilty of having accepted that he would receive bribes concerning the manipulation of matches in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics.”

The case is the latest to emerge from FIFA’s long-running investigation into the activities of Singaporean Wilson Raj Perumal, who FIFA has called a “known match-fixer” and who has admitted such activity in several interviews.

FIFA said that Siasia was banned for life “from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level.”

The Independent Ethics Committee in its statement said the formal ethics proceedings against Mr Samson Siasia were initiated on 11th February 2019 and stem from an extensive investigation into matches that Mr Wilson Raj Perumal attempted to manipulate for betting purposes. The committee said:

This large-scale investigation was conducted by FIFA via its competent departments and in cooperation with the relevant stakeholders and authorities.

In its decision, the adjudicatory chamber found that Mr Siasia had breached act 11 (bribery) of the 2009 edition of the FIFA code of ethics and banned him for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level. Also, a fine in the amount of CJF 50,000 has been imposed on Mr Siasia.

The decision was notified to Mr Siasia today, the date on which the ban comes into force.” #samsonsiasia
