Geneva:

FIFA said on Friday that it had sanctioned seven Caribbean football officials for their role in a meeting that eventually led to the downfall of former Asian football chief Mohamed bin Hamman.

Patrick John from Dominica received the most severe sentence, with a ban of two years and a fine of 3,000 francs ($3,288, 2,421 euros).

Montserrat's Vincent Cassell was banned for 60 days, Anguilla's Raymond Guishard for 45 days, Guyana's Noel Adonis for 30 days, Montserrat's Tandica Hughes for 15 days and Everton Gonsalves from Antigua and Barbuda for seven days.

All five were each fined 300 francs.

Antigua and Barbuda's Derrick Gordon was reprimanded and fined 300 francs.

The cases of three officials -- Oliver Camps (Trinidad and Tobago), Lionel Haven (Bahamas) and Patrick Mathurin (St Lucia) were closed as they were no longer involved in the game.

Dominica's Philippe White and Anguilla's Damien Hughes were cleared of the charges.

Bin Hammam was banned from football for life in July after he was found guilty of seeking to buy votes in the FIFA presidential election by offering cash gifts of $40,000 each to delegates at the May Caribbean Football Union get-together.
