BFF forms inquiry committee following Shohag’s ban
Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) today formed a seven-member inquiry committee to investigate Abu Nayeem Shohag's financial irregularities.
The committee that included four BFF vice-presidents and three executive members have been asked to submit their reports within a month.
"We formed the committee to know what happened and why it happened," BFF president Kazi Salahuddin told the reporters after an executive meeting today. He also informed that an internal audit committee will look into the matter.
The BFF's executive committee also appointed Imran Hossain Tushar, the chief protocol officer of BFF and personal secretary of BFF president Kazi Salahuddin, to act as interim general secretary for the next three months.
FIFA's adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee on Friday sanctioned the general secretary of the BFF, Shohag, imposing on him a two-year ban from all football-related activities for having used false and/or falsified documents to justify payments made by the BFF with FIFA funds.
