General Secretary of the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) and President of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU), Gordon Derick, has once again, come under the heavy microscope of FIFA, whose adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has opened formal proceedings against the Antiguan.
The proceedings, the body said, is based on a final report submitted by the investigatory chamber.
The allegations levelled against Derrick include conflict of interest, offering and accepting gifts and other benefits, mismanagement of funds, abuse of position, and disloyalty.
Derrick, when contacted, declined to comment on the development, stating that the matter is being handled by his legal team.
In the final report, which was passed to the adjudicatory chamber on April 21, 2017, the investigator, Dr Cornel Borbély, recommended imposing a ban of no less than four years on the Antiguan official, during which time he would not be allowed to take part in any kind of football-related activity, administrative, sports or in any other capacity, as well as a fine of no less than CHF (Swiss franc) 15,000 for the alleged violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics articles in question.
Derrick has reportedly been provided with the relevant final report and has been invited to submit his position, including any evidence with regard to the content of said report.
