The bans relate to the scandal that saw Mohamed Bin Hammam banned

Six officials, all from the Caribbean, have been banned by Fifa for their roles in a bribery scandal.

The punishments are the fall-out from the case that saw ex-Fifa presidential candidate Mohamed Bin Hammam banned for life for attempted bribery.

The suspensions, of between two years and seven days, have been imposed for breaching ethics rules.

Patrick John, Vincent Cassell, Raymond Guishard, Noel Adonis, Tandica Hughes and Everton Gonsalves have been banned.

Derrick Gordon (Antigua and Barbuda) received a reprimand and a fine of £210.

Bin Hammam had been banned for life for offering or making cash gifts to officials from the 25 Caribbean Football Union associations at a special meeting in Trinidad on 10 May.

A Fifa statement added: "The cases of Oliver Camps (Trinidad and Tobago), Lionel Haven (Bahamas, CFU) and Patrick Mathurin (St Lucia) were closed since they are no longer football officials.

"Should they return to football official positions, their cases would be examined again by the ethics committee.

"Philippe White (Dominica) and Damien Hughes (Anguilla) were considered not to have committed any violation."
