09 Jun 2019 Tolo News

The Attorney General's Office (AGO) on Sunday issued arrest warrant for ex-football chief Keramuddin Karim a day after he was banned from the sport for life for sexual abuse, a spokesman for the AGO, Jamshid Rasuli confirmed.

Karim was fined $1 million by FIFA and the the verdict came on Saturday after a meeting of the adjudicatory chamber of the ethics committee, the Associated Press reported. 

Quoted by the Associated Press, FIFA said the “'investigation into Mr. Karim concerned the complaints lodged by at least five Afghani female football players, accusing him of repeated sexual abuse in the period 2013-2018, abusing his function as President of the AFF."

The issue was raised by a member of the Afghan Football Federation, Khalida Popal, who claimed last year in December that woman members of the federation were abused physically and sexually by male members of the AFF at its headquarters and at a training camp in Jordan in 2016.
