FIFA imposes CHF 1 million on former CBF President

The adjudicatory chamber of the Independent Ethics Committee of FIFA has imposed a fine in the amount of CHF 1 million on former President of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) Jose Maria Marin, reports the organization’s official website. He has also been banned for life from all football-related activities.
