Arrest Warrant against AFF Chief

10 Jun 2019 The Killid Group

The Attorney General’s Office on Sunday issued an arrest warrant for ex-football chief Keramuddin Karim a day after he was banned from the sport for life, authorities confirmed.

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

FIFA says 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,” as quoted by the Associated Press.

The issue was raised by a member of the AFF 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.

United States Ambassador to Kabul John Bass said in a tweet Monday they welcome FIFA's decision on former football Chief Keramuddin Karim. And "we call on the Government of Afghanistan to complete its investigation, and ensure justice is served," he said.
