A senior sporting official has been banned by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague for war crimes.

FIFA said curators had banned Patrice Edward Ngaisona for six years and eight months on charges including "discrimination and failure to protect integrity and human dignity" and fined him 500,000 Swiss francs.

Ngaisuna has been president of the Central African Football Confederation for more than a decade since 2008 and was elected last year to the executive committee of the Confederation of African Football.

Ngaesuna is suspected of committing war crimes in 2013 and 2014, as a leader of the anti-Balaka Christian militia that targeted Muslims.

At the time of his alleged war crimes, Ngaisuna was a member of the FIFA World Cup Organizing Committee and was appointed by the FIFA in 2017 as a member of the Associations Committee.

He was arrested last December in France and transferred to the Netherlands, where the ICC is based.
