Ghanaian judge to head FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee

Ghana’s Supreme Court justice, Anin Yeboah, has been elected as chairman of FIFA's Disciplinary Committee.

He was voted in for a four-year term at the congress of football’s world governing body in Bahrain. Justice Yeboah was a member of FIFA’s Ethics Committee last year.

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee is composed of a chairman, a vice-chairman and the number of members deemed necessary. The chairman and the vice-chairman must have legal training.

The Commission shall act in accordance with the FIFA Disciplinary Code. Decisions are made in the presence of at least three members. In special cases, the chairman may decide alone.

The Disciplinary Committee may impose sanctions on members, clubs, officials, players, game agents and players' agents, as defined in the Statutes and the FIFA Disciplinary Regulations.

Congress and the FIFA Council reserve the disciplinary power in regard to the suspension and exclusion of members.

The Ghanaian judge was one of several Africans voted onto committees at the congress, including Rwanda's Martin Ngoga as deputy chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Ethics Committee.
