The Court of Arbitration For Sports (CAS) Sanctions FECAFOOT, Reverses Several Key Decisions

The decision was contained in a communique signed on August 15th, 2023, by members of a commission headed by Jacques Radoux.

Some of the decisions contained in the CAS communique are listed below: 

  • Guibai Gatama, who before the August 22nd,2022 suspension was FECAFOOT executive committee representing the Far North Regional Football League, has been reinstated by CAS as a FECAFOOT executive committee member. 
          The decision to dismiss him was reversed and deemed invalid.
