Fifa have announced the temporary suspension of Jean-Guy Blaise Mayolas and Badji Mombo Wantete, respectively the vice president and secretary general of the Republic of Congo football federation (Fecofoot).

The world’s football governing body said the two officials are under investigation on the breach of code of ethics.

At the request of Cornel Borbély, President of the Ethics Commission of the investigating chamber of Fifa, Hans-Joachim Eckert, the chairman of the trial chamber, temporarily suspended both men from any activity related to football at national and international levels.

The suspension follows a request for “various offences under the Ethics Code of Fifa”, according to a statement.

The Ethic Code prohibits corruption, conflicts of interest, accepting gifts and committing discrimination. It also obliges Fifa officials to observe the principle of neutrality.
