CAF President Issa Hayatou referred to prosecutors
By News Express on 05/01/2017
CAF President Issa Hayatou.
Confederation of African Football President Issa Hayatou has been referred to Egyptian prosecutors for investigation over allegedly abusing his position.
At issue is a deal awarding the broadcast rights to several African football tournaments to a media company, Lagardere Sports.
According to the Egyptian Competition Authority, Hayatou is suspected of not opening up the tender to free and fair competition as required by Egyptian law.
CAF is based in Cairo so the authorities say it must follow their laws.
African football's governing body had no comment to make, while Hayatou could not be reached.
The 70-year-old is currently in Abuja, Nigeria, ahead of Thursday’s CAF annual awards.
Hayatou was elected as CAF president in 1998 and is serving his seventh term in office.
Lagardere is not the subject of the referral, but says the allegation is wholly unfounded.
