Former Brazil football chief receives life ban

RIO DE JANEIRO, April 16 (Xinhua) Former Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) president Jose Maria Marin has been given a life ban from all football-related activities for corruption, the sport's governing body FIFA said on Monday.
The 86-year-old was also fined one million Swiss francs (997,000 U.S. dollars) and ordered to forfeit 3.34 million dollars.
Marin, who is currently serving a four-year prison term in the United States after being convicted on bribery charges last year, was found guilty by FIFA's ethics committee of accepting illicit payments in exchange for media and marketing rights.
"In its decision, the adjudicatory chamber found that Mr Marin had breached art. 27 (Bribery) of the FIFA Code of Ethics and, as a result, banned him for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level," FIFA said in a statement.
Marin's predecessor as CBF president, Ricardo Teixeira, and his successor, Marco Polo del Nero, were also indicted on corruption charges by U.S. authorities but have not been extradited.
