African soccer body: IOC ruling disrespectful

Africa’s governing soccer body says the IOC was disrespectful in

reprimanding its president, who was cited for taking money from a

former FIFA marketing agency.

The International Olympic Committee ruled Thursday that Issa

Hayatou was guilty of a conflict of interest when he received

$20,000 in 1995 from ISL.

The Confederation of African Football said Friday the IOC had

not considered documents that showed Hayatou did not receive the

money personally and that it was put into the accounts of the

soccer body.

The confederation said by rejecting those documents the IOC

showed ”disrespect” and ”lack of consideration of the IOC

towards the Pan-African institution.”
