KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): FIFA’s chief ethics judge has rejected the Afghanistaninfo-icon Football Federation (AFF) chief’s appeal against a 90-day interim ban.

Accused of sexual abuse of female players, AFF President Keramuudin Karim had appealed to the game’s international regulatory body for lifting the ban.

However, chief ethics judge Vassilios Skouris turned down Karim’s petition, according to the Associated Press. The ban imposed in December could be extended by 45 days

In December, the Attorney General Office (AGO) suspended the AFF head for alleged sexual and physical abuse of female players of the national team.

The abuse allegedly took place at AFF’s main office and at a training camp in Jordan in February 2018.
