FIFA has banned six more Caribbean officials for their part in an alleged bribery plot involving former presidential candidate Mohamed bin Hammam.

FIFA says Patrick John, the former prime minister of Dominica, is barred from all soccer activity for two years. Montserrat federation president Vincent Cassell was suspended for 60 days by the FIFA ethics committee.

Four other officials received bans of seven to 45 days.

Gordon Derrick of Antigua and Barbuda was reprimanded, clearing him to be a candidate in the upcoming Caribbean Football Union presidential election.

FIFA says it dropped charges against three more officials who resigned. Cases against two others were dropped.

The penalties were announced on Friday.
