Ahmad Ahmad who has been banned by FIFA has on Friday been reinstated as Central African Football (CAF) President pending his hearing by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
The decision passed by CAS temporarily halts the ban by FIFA pending his hearing on March and to whether he will be able to vie in the coming CAF elections set for March 12th.
During the interim hearing, CAS noted the irreplaceable harm posed as the head of African football remained banned pending his hearing.
- Andre Villas-Boas to leave Marseille end of the season
- Ibrahimovic and Lukaku each given one match suspension
- CAF President Ahmad slapped 5-year ban by FIFA
They continued by revealing that the current decision will not cloud their judgement if he is found guilty of any wrongdoing levelled against him.
FIFA banned Ahmad Ahmad from vying in the upcoming elections citing integrity and eligibility as the reason behind the decision.
The decision was reviewed by CAF who issued temporary orders reinstating Ahmad as the ban will block him from standing a chance to vie in the coming elections.
In November FIFA banned Ahmad after they found him guilty of abuse of office, loyalty, mismanagement of fund and issuing of gifts and other benefits in his capacity as CAF President.
Ahmad Ahmad was serving his four year term as CAF President having been elected in 2017.
