Harris takes over as head of CFU
RANDY HARRIS may be short in stature but he’s standing tall in Caribbean football.
The president of the Barbados Football Association was this week elevated to the top position of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU).
Harris replaces Antiguan Gordon Derrick, who was found guilty of a series of bribery and conflict of interest charges by the FIFA ethics adjudicatory chamber and was on Monday banned for six years from all football related activities.
Derrick was accused of offering and accepting gifts or other benefits, 19 conflicts of interest, 15 charges of disloyalty, and having broken 13 general rules of conduct of the FIFA Code of Ethics.
In addition, the committee stated in an official report that Derrick had “breached duty of disclosure, cooperation and reporting and obligation of the parties to collaborate in the course of the present proceedings”.
For the charges as outlined, he was slapped with a Swiss francs $30 000 fine by new ethics chief judge Vassilious Skouris. (RA)
