CAF PRESIDENT ARRESTED IN FRANCE


The president of the Confederation of African Football, Ahmad Ahmad  has been arrested at the Berri Hotel in Paris, France. 

He is being questioned in connection into the alleged misappropriation of $830,000.

In April, former CAF Secretary-General Amr Fahmy accused Ahmad Ahmad of alleged bribery and misappropriation of funds after awarding a contract to a French company called Tactical Steel.  Fahmy was fired from the organisation shortly after making the allegations.

Ahmad had previously denied the accusations, claiming all the decisions were made “collegially” and that the process was “transparent”.

Ahmad also serves as the vice-president of FIFA.

Following Ahmad’s arrest, FIFA released a statement, saying it will not comment on the matter and that the organization is focused on its mission to run football in a clean and transparent manner worldwide.
