ROSEAU, Dominica (AP) – Delegates of the Dominica Football Association have voted in favor of a resolution to ban the organization's president from the sport from the remainder of his term.
In November, FIFA banned Patrick John from all football activity for two years for his part in an alleged bribery plot involving former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam.
Local delegates on the tiny Caribbean island voted in favor of the ban 24-7 on Monday. It means John cannot participate in any local activities until 2015.
John and other Caribbean officials were allegedly offered or received $40,000 cash payments during bin Hammam's campaign visit to Trinidad to support the Qatari candidate against Sepp Blatter.
Under FIFA's code of ethics, officials are not allowed to accept cash gifts and must report corruption.
