GENEVA, February 12. /TASS/. The FIFA Ethics committee has banned the organization’s former Secretary General Jerome Valcke for 12 years from all football-related activities, FIFA said on its website on Friday.

FIFA announced on September 18 that Valcke, who held the post of the organization’s secretary general since 2007, was "put on leave and released from his duties effective immediately until further notice."

On January 6, the adjudicatory chamber of the FIFA Ethics Committee extended the suspension of Jerome Valcke by 45 days, at the request of the investigatory chamber.

The FIFA Emergency Committee decided on January 9 to dismiss Valcke with immediate effect.

FIFA announced last year it was notified that 54-year-old Valcke was allegedly involved in illegal schemes of ticket sales for matches of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and also taking a bribe to support South African bid to host the 2010 World Cup.

Valcke was found guilty of violating several articles the FIFA Code of Ethics, including those on loyalty, confidentiality and conflict of interests, and fined $102,880.
