"The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee...has today banned two FIFA Vice-Presidents - the President of the South American Football Confederation, Juan Angel Napout, and the President of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football...Alfredo Hawit, from all football-related activities for 90 days," a statement said.
