FIFA bans bin Hammam for life in bribery case
FIFA bans Qatar official Mohamed bin Hammam for life for bribing presidential election voters
By The Associated Press

ZURICH (AP) ' FIFA has banned Mohamed bin Hammam from soccer for life after finding him guilty of bribing presidential election voters.

The sport's governing body has ruled that the Qatari candidate conspired to pay Caribbean officials $40,000 cash bribes to back his ultimately abandoned challenge to FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

Bin Hammam is the most senior FIFA official convicted of corruption in its 107-year history.

The Asian Football Confederation president didn't cooperate with the FIFA investigation or attend his hearing Friday.

Bin Hammam denied wrongdoing but wrote on his website Friday that he expected a guilty verdict and would appeal.
