Bin Hammam protests ‘unfair’ FIFA exclusion

Mohamed bin Hammam says it’s ”unfair” that he was denied entry
to the FIFA Congress because he’s provisionally suspended while
bribery allegations are investigated.

Bin Hammam says in a statement that FIFA denied his request to
give him detailed legal reasons for the suspension so that he could
challenge it.

He says he has been punished before being found guilty.

Bin Hammam, the Asian soccer president, was suspended Sunday
with FIFA colleague Jack Warner while FIFA investigates whether
they bribed Caribbean voters during his abandoned presidential
campaign.

FIFA’s Congress opened Wednesday, with President Sepp Blatter
poised to be re-elected.
